My pullets should be laying any day now. Both my layer pullets and the rescue cornish are 18 weeks old, as of today. I'm not real concerned with when they will lay, be it now or in the spring. I am kinda excited for the rescues to lay. The farmer that gave them to me took a look at them last week and said it should be any time for them; plus, the rescues have been squatting for their roo (Ollie) for about a week now. Ollie the rescue roo is the alpha of my combined juvenile flock, but he's so big there's not much he can do about the antics of my other cockerel. Anyhow, Ollie has been singing the egg song at random times today. I know it's the egg song. There's nothing else that sounds quite like it. I just can't figure out why he's doing it when the pullets haven't started laying yet. If it was the pullets practicing it I could understand, but the roo?
