That's what I'd say. Mine started the cackle a day or two before their actual first egg.

Congrats!!!!!!

Mine acted just like that before they laid. And it took a few days for them to figure out what was going on and then they settled down. Chell still acts like that on the days she lays a double yolker.

I have a speckled sussex and I don't if they are all like this but I stayed away from them because she is SO DARN NOISY!!!! We call her China....If she knows your around she starts goin wwwaaaaaa waaaaaa wwwaaaaa... and interupts you until she gets attention. she knows her name too if she is anywhere in the yard even across the field you yell china she starts up wwwaaaaa!!! is to funny but if your trying to talk to someone next to the run she has to put in her 2 cents.
