My BR started laying 4 days ago, hopefully the others will do it soon. Today, she started making a loud cackling noise before she went in to lay and looking it up on here, I guess that is normal. I can't imagine what it will sound like when the rest of them, other 11 hens, will start. I was wondering, when they start laying will they tend to stay closer to the coop? The BR was staying close to the coop while the others wondered. Seems like she got louder the farther they went.
