confused a tad here... yeah they may not just be ready to accually lay but somethings have got me wandering. for one.. two weeks ago i heard more than once the egg song.. hubby did to. we checked weeds and coop .. nothing! they show all the signs other than sqating when i approach. our rooster however is getting over time in. all that singing has gone this week they chatter all the time but no song. i have twice heard a hen in the coop making sounds but not singing and then will leave after a short time .. no egg. her talking is something like baaaaaaawk cluck cluck .. with silace or very low gurgalling and once in a while a bawk bawk. baaaaaaaaaaaaawk and its not loud kind of like chicken whispering or something.. i figure maybe checking out the nest box maybe and i noticed today two of the other big ladies hung around coop making similar chatter and coming in and out of coop. is this progress or has this colder weather put a wrench in the works? maybe the roosters increased advances possibly or because he stures up the younger chicks chasing them around tryn to breed... could i just be too impatent?? i feef them layef mesh i give treats always have fresh water.. clean coop..
