Chickens are incredibly interesting animals to have on the farm. They have huge personalities and are so much fun to watch. Chickens have over 200 distinct noises they can make for communicating. This fact doesn’t surprise me at all. Ours have quite a few calls that I recognize and know their purpose. They have a call they do when they have laid an egg, when they are looking for their flock mates, when they have found food, warning calls, look out calls, etc… and if you are around them long enough you can distinguish these calls yourself.
