    I have a sixteen week old BO that keeps making the sound: bawk, bawk, bawk *SQUAWK*!!!!! every once in awhile. I would maybe think this is the egg song, except that her comb and wattles are not red. Could this be the case anyway, or if not, why would she be making such a rukus???

    Thanks,

    Kerry

    It sounds like she is gearing up and practicing her egg song! [​IMG]

    Do you really think so??? How long do they sing before the big production??? Could there be something else going on, or does everyone think this is it??? Thanks!

    some are just a lot more chatty than others lol she may just be doing that or it could be practice but I have some hens that do that a lot and not alays cause they are about to, are, or just finished laying, sometimes it is to yell at me for treats, other times just because... Nothing is wrong though [​IMG]
