I am a first timer, but my chickens just started clucking within the last few weeks. They are 16-17 weeks old.

Mine started clucking at 10 weeks and are full blown bawking at 12 weeks.

I'm a first-timer also, mine are 10 weeks old.  A couple have started to cluck, one has started a quiet bwwaaaak, and they all still peep.  Enjoy your peeps.

I was wondering the answer to this as well, my 3 older sexlink girls and my 4 orpingtons all started clucking around 2 months old and it didn't take long to get to bawking, maybe another week.  In fact the orps just turned 2 months old this week and have been clucking about 1 week now, so maybe more like 7 weeks for them . . . .
