    My two mille fleur bantams are making the most curious sound.. they are now 26 weeks old and haven't laid an egg yet. This evening when I was out by the coop and they were free ranging, they would make a sound almost like a cat meow and then let out a sound like "ouch". I've never heard this before. Do you think they're trying to lay an egg? or just making new sounds? or wishful thinking?

    My SLW started making a different sound right before she started laying. It was almost a muttering under her breath.....bwaaaaak buk-buk. I had never heard her make that sound before but now she makes it all the time. It shouldn't be long now.[​IMG]

    x2, my Brahma is really close I think. Squatting, nesting, and she has been VERY talkative these last few days. I sit and just let her gripe because it sounds like she is moaning and complaining about all the wrongs in the world. Her talking is very critical like PMS talk ya know? [​IMG]
