Chickens Stories from Our Nest

NPR, The Chickens are Interviewed

I received a phone call from our local National Public Radio (NPR) radio station. They had read that I learned to speak the chickens’ language.  They came to create a Sonic ID.  If you listen to NPR, you will know the Sonic IDs to be the small, under two minute, stories that assist in transitioning the main stories together.  My favorite part, is that I recognize each and everyone of my girls talking to me in the background.  I’m so proud of my girls!  Click here to listen.  Enjoy!

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • That was SO cool. Love it.

  • Mara KL

    So cute!

  • Too cute–and super cool to be on NPR! I love how I can recognize my chickens from a distance too. They definitely have their own language. 🙂

  • What wonderful sounds they make. My girls make their own sounds that I am beginning to recognize the meanings of too. I just love it. Something that after a 20 year dry spell with no chickens, I had forgotten about. Loved the interview.

  • Pretty cool, Melissa! It's so true! I can not only tell what their sounds mean, but who's making them! LOL

  • Laurie

    That's terrific!! We're getting our first baby chicks in one month and I look forward to getting to know my girls. I love all their little noises.

  • OMchick, that is so cool! Love it!!!

  • Cool. I've been telling my wife I understand the girls language and she doesn't believe me. Now I can have her sit and read this post and the linked post as well as the interview. Maybe she won't think I'm crazy now???

    • Dan, you are definitely NOT crazy!

  • So neat!
