    I don't know why, but I always thought that the sounds hens make (which to me, sounds like they are "worrying" or "fretting" about something) means they're getting ready to lay.

    I have a young hen who hasn't laid her first egg yet, but she has been making the "worrying" sounds for a few weeks now, and she seems to be getting louder and louder. I hope she lays real soon!!! [​IMG]
