    Yes, that is normal. Hens will usually cackle after laying an egg, and will also (at least in my experience) often begin making clucking noises.

    I have a Columbian Wyandotte large-fowl, a Silver-Laced Wyandotte large-fowl, an Easter Egger, a Rhode Island Red large-fowl, a few White Wyandotte Bantams, and a few Light-Brown Dutch Bantams. I several Dutch Bantam roosters, and two Wyandotte bantam roosters. All of them are tame, beautiful, and enjoyable to keep. [​IMG]
