OK- I had one hean that started laying about 6 weeks ago and then promptly quit 2 weeks ago and decided to go broody... we're still working on that. But starting yesterday 3-4 of the girls have started up with the obnoxious clucking-screeching. I ran outside three times yesterday thinking something was after them while they were ranging only to find them on the porch starinf at me screaming. I am sitting out here today with the computer and luch and they are up to the same stuff!!!!! Is this mornrmal. They have all been relatively quiet up until now Except the the one that started laying earlier!!!! Could they all be getting ready to lay??
