 Listening to Opera may Make Hens Lay More Eggs

Making hens listen to opera music can lead them to lay more eggs, a British farmer found.

Steve Ledsham played classical tracks and was shocked to find that a group of chickens laid almost twice their usual amount of eggs, the Daily Star reported.

Steve, who has worked on the farm for 20 years, said they were building a barn at the time and always had music playing in the background. It was soothing opera and classical music.

He said they noticed that the hens were laying more eggs and they put two and two together and realised it was because of the music. Happy animals produce better goods, so by playing some soothing opera classics they are able to relax a lot more.

Steve, 64, from Wirral, Merseyside further said hens normally lay about four eggs each in a week but with music they lay can lay up to eight.
