    Your privacy settings make it so we can't see the video (try youtube maybe, so you don't have to change your FB settings).

    My guess though, is that you're hearing an egg song! Based on her age, she's getting ready to lay. If it is that, she's going to make that same song every time she lays. Some of mine do it before, some do it after, some do it before and after laying. It depends on the girl. My rooster will also sing it back to his ladies to congratulate them, so don't write it off as an egg song even if they all do it!
