Around 6:30 this morning I heard a lot of "music". In the barely awake condition I was in, I thought it sounded like the wild turkey hens we have running around in the woods. So I got out of bed and went to go let my girls out of the coop. When I opened the back door to walk out, I realized the sounds was coming from the coop. Immediately I thought something was very wrong and perhaps something got into the coop. I ran barefoot (Ouch, stepped on a rock!) to check on the girls. When I opened the long legged creature door, all of the girls looked at me like I was some crazed lunatic in need of a straight jacket fast. They were fine. Now that I think back about the sounds I was hearing, it sounded like a couple of them were singing the "egg song"! I can only hope. Six of them are 14 week old Golden Comets and from what I understand they can start to lay anywhere from 16 weeks. I think they are practicing.
