When do pullets usually trade their "cheeps" for "bok boks"? I am hearing some distinctly hen-like noises from my EE for the last couple of days, but not all the time. Is this unusual?

Just heard one of my 7 week old girls make a "big girl" sound today. The others stopped dead in their tracks like "what the heck was THAT?"....

My 12 week old RSL are no longer peeping...they are officially BIG GIRLS doing the boc-boc. They talk to me each time I go in and out on the porch...when I answer them with a boc-boc...they turn their heads and look at me like "when did she learn this new version??" Too funny.

My SL wyandotts are starting to "ba-gwak". I think I liked the cheeping better. I got them at the beginning of March so they are 14 weeks old.

My 9 week old EE is making big girl sounds and the rest are still peeping with just the occasional Bawk. I'm going to miss the peeping but I love hearing the clucking too!
