Our coop, run, and chicken yard are about 50 yards from our house. They face away from the house, so we can't hear anything that goes on out there. So, we got a baby monitor so we can hear the "egg song" when it finally happens. We hooked it up and I was looking forward to all the happy chicken noises we would hear in the house. Guess what?!? Unless someone is out there, or there is a fight, our chickens are SILENT! They chatter and cluck like crazy when we are out there, and I just assumed they were the same way with each other. Oh well.
