    I've been going out every couple of hours to check for eggs. I love getting outside in winter.

    Well, it was a mild January morning and my chickens were singing. Several different breeds and ages were belting out the "happy chicken song" together.

    You know the rythmic "buck-buck-buck-buck BUCKOK! buck buck buck buck buck buck BUCKOK!", Each chicken had her own pace and tone and it all fit together, well, like Bach.

    I glanced around and realized that even roosters sing the happy chicken song! I didn't know that!

    And then I began to sing it too.

    There were surprised faces all around.

    I think only chickeneers get it. My GF and our house chicken actually communicate a little with both chicken sounds and human words. Really, really.[​IMG]

    Do any of you have a video of your chickens singing the happy chicken song?? I hear everyone talk about their chickens singing it but I've never seen/heard it and youtube isn't any help cause I don't know what I'm looking for
