I was wondering what is the egg song. My RIR are a 16weeks and I have notice a different chirp. Also I still have them on the chick starter food and I put a little poultry grit with it, I was told not to start them on layed food until there first egg, because of the calcium! I also feed them fresh veggies in the morning, tomato, cucumber, fresh corn(only when it's cool) grapes, lettuce, they love it, not to much daily just a morning treat!

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! The eggs song is usually a lot of noise that the hen makes when she has laid an egg or when she is getting ready to lay and is having a practice. Often when one las a few of the hens join in to!! Here are some threads for you to check out on this ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=Egg+song+#

Good luck for the future and enjoy BYC :frow

Actually the egg song is kinda like "Bawk Bawk, Bawk, BAWGAWK!"
Exactly what we heard this morning and then found this! Our very first egg!
