I've heard that hens make a certain cluck when they lay an egg.. so I just searched an audio clip. Oh yeah.. thats a familiar sound Was making it right outside my window the other morning when I was trying to sleep. Trying to tell me breakfast is ready? hehe. So, my hens (hen?) only lays where they (she?) feel like it. Only one is laying right now, that I know for sure. Sometimes in the coop, sometimes in a hiding spot in the yard (and if I can get our pen escape proofed and fit the nesting boxes in the coop, then hopefully they're lay where they're supposed to! The nesting boxes we got didn't fit.. argh.) So I'm constantly paranoid that there is some other egg laying spot that the others lay and I just haven't found it yet Could that distinctive cluck lead me to an egg? Do they ever make that sound when they are not announcing their egg, just, you know, because they feel like making lots of noise outside my window way too early in the morning? Because the morning when I looked out my window when I wasn't ready to get up to see which hen was making that racket and whyyyyy.. it was not the one known to be currently laying, and it was nowhere near a known "egg laying" spot. Did she lay and I have a hunt to go on, or was she just making a nuisance of herself?
