Australops do they make more of a honking goose like sound then a cluck?

  1. They are perfectly healthy girls but compared to my wyndotts sexlinks and EEs they sound downright odd.

    Different breeds make different noises. I wouldn't worry. For example, my Columbian Wyandotte makes sort of barking noises and wailing noises, while my Easter Egger chirrs and warbles. My Rhode Island Red sounds different than my Silver Laced Wyandotte in that she makes sort of "guullll, guulll, gullll" noises.

    Some birds do that in the heat. I had an Orpington that used to honk like a goose when it was hot.

    Our Aussies do that too! They are SO loud! And it sounds kind of like a goose honk. :)
