    Hi,

    I have one RIR hen that seems to be constantly singing the egg song, also. I have no idea why but I thought I would let you know you are not alone! [​IMG] Genie

    I love the egg song. I wonder what the purpose of their singing it is? No doubt someone somewhere has spent their life researching the matter...
