    My 2 23 wk old Dominiques are acting and SOUNDING like they are ready to begin the process, but nothing yet.. One seems to be more interesterd than the other. When one is in the nest box hangin out, the other one just shouts loud chicken shouts til they are again together. Separation anxiety to the max! Tried putting them in the coop with pop door shut.. Due to the vents, they were nearly as loud as they are outside in the run. What to do?? Hope we don't upset any neighbors. Thank God they don't do this during the night...

    Sounds like practicing the egg song to me.

    They will practice some egg song before the real deal. I hope your neighbors won't be ticked off by the noise, some of our breeds are really loud. Our 3 cochins don't egg song, it is strange.
