    My americauna laid her first egg about 3hours ago and she's making very weird noises, like a crying noise and a high pitch sneeze thing. Is this sound normal??? i wish I could upload a video. [​IMG]

    Many first time layers make all kinds of noises, from screeching, to screaming, to cackling, it's all new feelings and sensations and you should expect some odd behaviors and noises until it becomes something familiar to them.

    Ok. I just don't want to be ignoring her if she were trying to tell me something. I hope it doesn't last too much longer. She's getting bullied a bit.

    My chickens made tons of different noises when they laid their first egg, I wouldn't worry about it :)

    She's probably wondering, "What just happened here???"
