    It's also a 'danger' song - my chickens all do it when something is bothering them like my new kitten running around. They ALL start egg songing, even the roo. [​IMG]

    My Bantam Cochin Roo use to (when he was younger) jump into the nesting box and stay there singing egg songs.. the best advice someone gave me was that he was most likely encouraging and or teaching the pullets .. sure enough it carried on for a week and then stopped , and the pullets started going in the nesting box and laying..
    I had made this Youtube video, appropriately titled :
    "Broody Rooster- not laying any eggs?!"

    Bless their hearts. My DH and I just
    went thru this last week. It was the strangest
    thing to see them stop and not move a muscle.
    We walked around the run and never saw anything.
    Thanks to BYC, we were informed to look up!
