    One of my girls has what I call a bedtime song. She goes in the coop at bedtime and calls the other girls in. Well last night I noticed her song is not the same. She sounds like a goose honking or like a chicken trying to bark like a dog. Should I be concerned or are they just going through voice changes? She is 10 weeks old. I did notice they aren't making the same little peepy noises anymore. They are starting to cluck like big girls!

    Larger breed chickens will tend to have deeper voices in my experience.
