    I ran out side today because the girls where making a racket. It didn't sound like a warning cry but I went any way. They were all walking around balking at the top of their lungs and gabbing it went on for about five minutes. I could see no danger and they have not started laying yet. I'm mistified ?

    If someone is getting close to laying, it could be that. They seem to get more vocal as the big day approaches - both the one about to lay the egg and the others.
