    I'm thinking to myself...when the mother hen sits on her eggs, she coos to them and turn them. Very motherly right? So the chick basically hears the mommy before they pop out! Now that I'm about to be that mother hen I wonder, maybe during the whole incubation time I should play Mozart music! Maybe I'll end up with Einstein chickens [​IMG]

    I think you should record lots of chicken clucks and play them in a loop. That might work better than instrumental sounds. While it's music to us it's not really the same to chicks. I would think they'd mostly consider it unrecognized noise.
