Soosie says hello

This is Soosie.  She's the brown and white speckled one, a Sussex chicken.  The other golden one is waiting for Soosie to get out of the nest so she can lay an egg.  Never mind there are 4 other nests she could lay in.

I've been telling people for a while that Soosie yells "HELLO" when she's laying eggs but no one seems to believe me except Adam and his friend because they once heard it too.  Today I set the camera on top the chicken coop while she was in there and let the video run until she said hello.  In 20 minutes time she said it 8 times.  She'll sit in the nest for more than an hour and she doesn't even take any reading material in there with her.
Here she is   
Next I'll teach her to say "goodbye"


  1. Our hens say "tobacco" when they lay. Maybe because Charlotte County is a big tobacco grower.

  2. She used to say Hello and then Help but now only hello and it's not as clear as it used to be.

    You should record "tobacco" so I can hear it. That's funny.
