Do your hens sqwark for ages (and I'm talking hours) if they are laying? Mine is going bonkers this morning and is driving me mad. She hasn't gone into roost but has not shut up. She hasn't layed for a couple of months because she was moulting so I was thinking that maybe she is considering laying again. What do you think? Does it sound like laying? She hasn't made this much noise in the past though.
