I have a small free range flock and I'm waiting for my first eggs. So I've read all about everything, and heard the egg song from several chickens on youtube. So a week ago I heard "Bak-bak-bak-BAAAAK! Bak-bak-bak-BAAAAK!" and ran out to see if there was an egg, only to find my bantam mix roo squawking about a bird of prey overhead (probably too small to take chickens anyway). Now he sings the egg song at all hours of the day, at least three times a day, for no apparant reason. I was sitting on a chair watching them, petting Edgar the LB roo and he just started singing again, no danger to be seen and the others don't pay any attention to his calls. WHY?! Is he just trying to make sure I don't find out when the eggs do come? Of course I don't go out running anymore, he has taken the pleasure out of that sound. I haven't found anything that even looks like a nest out there, and I have shut them all in for many nights to see if there were any eggs.. Nothing. Light brahma is 37 weeks, it's about time. My plymouth rock and buff orp are 18 weeks, so a bit more patient there.
