    I went out to check on the chicks this morning. This little girl is about 9 weeks old and she has lost her voice? No drainage or anything. We did get a bit of a cold snap, but she seems to be doing fine other than her voice. Any ideas?

  2. Do you provide grit? What are they eating?

    They are eating medicated chick starter. They do have chick grit and have had a few dried mealworms and whatever little plants they have picked at in their run.
     
  4. Just thinking it is possible that your chick is learning to cluck...?

    I do not think it is that serious? If they are eating and pooping fine, have no worries.


    Cheers!

    Thank you for your input. I did actually consider that, but I've just never actually heard one sound like that before. I hope she's ok. [​IMG]
     
  6. No worries.......All you can do is keep an eye on it for other symptoms......I believe it will be fine.....


    Cheers!
     
  7. I think my three youngest birds have the same thing going on. I think their voices are changing [​IMG] I had never heard the difference, or when they went from peeping to clucking but I'm hoping that's all it is. Kinda cute
