    We have been chicken owners for 2 weeks now and so far so good!

    One question though . . We have a welsummer chick who appears to be mute (?). Unlike the others, this one opens her mouth to chirp, but there is never any sound.

    Should we be worried?

    That is strange. Maybe she is mute?

    Our Welsummers were some of our quietest chicks. Once the pullets started laying several of them found their voice, the others are still some of the quiet ones of the flock.
