    My lil 10week baby made a sound like a mobile phone vibrating.. kinda brrrrp, higher pitch than a mobile of course. As to what she was doing at the time, sitting on my shoulder, staring towards the neighbours trees where I could hear some wildbirds chattering away.

    Any ideas what this crazy noise means??



    And BTW, everyone whose not Australia, Mobile Phone ='s Cell Phone. And Mobile is a more logical name for it [​IMG]

    Hi:)

    My chickens make those brr noises lots as well. Mostly when I disturb them during egg laying, or when they are startled by something loud or strange. I think it's just their way of saying 'what the hell?'

    Quote:I agree. My girls make that noise when they want to alert each other that something may or may not be wrong in the universe. It always makes the rest of the flock freeze and look around.
