I'll try and make this as clear as possible. I bought a barred rock and buff Orpington about 17 weeks ago. The barred rock was 4 weeks when we got her and the buff was 10 weeks. The buff was a rooster little did I know. At almost 30 weeks old the buff crowed and had to be given up. He was traded for a 22 week old Easter egger. I now have 2 22 week old chickens. When we brought the EE home the pecking order was established and the barred rock is now the dominant chicken. Today I was out doing yard work and the Barred started doing a clucking noise like I have never heard before. A soft clucking at first and then let's out 1 or 2 louder ones then it gets soft and so on. This happened around 5 o clock or so. (Evening of course. I don't do yard work in the dark morning hours) no stretching of the wings or neck either. So was it the egg song? Or was it a crow? It sounded nothing like my BOs crowing antics. It sounded like the egg song but no squatting or eggs. She has a small comb and waddle. But if I had just the BO and the barred together and they were both roosters wouldn't the BO have killed the barred since they are the only two chickens in the yard? Next time I'm outside I will try to video it and get it up here.
