My 10 week old chick which we think definitly looks like a hen, started to honk! She sounds so strange and like a goose...
Is this normal!?
Why does my chick honk like a goose!?!

I got chick not even a week old yet that sounds like a crow..kinda cute sounding though..I thought huh that don't sound like a chick..mabe your chicken is a goose, and the other one a duck and mine a crow..wow...
I have three hatchlings 10 weeks old, they are all "honking like geese". Cochin bantams, and hoping they aren't allllll roos, but sure seems like it.
Isn't it sad that the boys act so badly that they can't even live in town with the girls.... shame shame

looks like this could go either way.. but my experience is that if they have that deep voice.. they are a roo!
um... no.. lol. nice try though.
I have two Russian Orloff pullets, Sasha and Sonja, that both 'honk'. It is their signature sound and they have done it ever since they got old enough to grow out of their baby 'peeps.'
