Is there any particular reason why my rooster would be singing the egg song instead of my hens? One of my D'uccle hens is starting to lay and I can hear the egg song loud and clear from inside my house and rush out there to find it's him making the racket. He'll even go inside and sit in one of the nest boxes while cooing contentedly. Now. I KNOW he's a rooster, does his crowing and his dancing and his mounting. No egg so I went back inside and about an hour later I hear egg singing again but even louder and far more exaggerated - more skeptical so I look out the window to see it is indeed him pacing up and down the chicken run singing the egg song delightedly - only this time an itty bitty little peach-coloured egg was nestled in the doorway of the coop where I could see. The hen that laid it didn't make a peep as only he did the egg song. What's up with him? Could he be stressing them out with that or is he just rooting his ladies on?
