OK, this is my first summer with chickens. I've read frequently about an "egg song", but since my girls were young, I had never heard it. Today I was putting one of my daycare children on the school bus when I heard a ruckus from the coop. I thought something was after the chickens! I anxiously put the child on the bus and hurried with 5 younguns (children, not chickens) back to the coop. All the birds were outside in the run but one. She was making quite a bit of noise, unlike anything she's made before (She is about 21 weeks old, EE) I watched through the window of the coop so I would not disturb her by opening the door. After about 3-4 minutes of this noise, she quit,walked around the coop,then went outside. She then appeared quite normal. I checked the coop, no egg found, nests undisturbed. I fed the birds their lunch (leftover daycare mac and cheese - they love it!), and she was right there with them. About 20 min later I heard her again. Once more she was inside, other chickens outside, but they were listening quite alertly to her. She went to a corner of the coop and made a "nest", arranging shavings as suited her. She is sitting there still, about 1/2 an hour later. Am I soon to have my first egg?
