Hey everyone! I have a funny story that now has me scratching my head, wondering what happened. It was a nice and peaceful morning; chickens were fed, had water, and all was taken care of. So, I decided to log in to BYC and see what was going on. Whilst lurking around the forums, my hen, 'Opal' started making the most bizarre sound I had ever heard from her. It was a loud and repetitive, "Bock-bock ba-COCK! Bock-bock ba-COCK!". I came racing down the stairs and out the back door; expecting to see a dying chicken or something tragic. She stopped the noise upon seeing me, and just stood there staring at me, probably wondering what the heck I was so upset about. Strangely, everything was fine. The only thing different that I noticed was that there was a nice big brown egg in her nest. I immediately wondered if it was the "egg song" that some people have mentioned on here, but I have seen her lay eggs much before this, and no egg song during those times. Even though I've never heard the "egg song" from her before, could this still be what it was?
