    Hi everyone. I'm sure the title tells you I'm new to chicks, and this might be a stupid question....but I'm noticing a few chicks that instead of the cheep, cheep sound making more of a well to me it sounds like a loud purring type cheep. Lol if that makes sense. Is this just a normal noise or does it mean something else? Thanks for any info...

    Well, I will try. Didn't know we could post videos! I have some cute ones of them outside fluttering around. There are 19 so, I'm not exactly sure who is doing it. I was wondering if it might be a boy chick thing. Hahaha

    Yes, they are all doing great, they are almost 5 weeks now. Just the new noise. I think it's cute, just wondered if it was a boy thing, trying to find their voice or something. Lol

    Hi, chickens purr when they are extremely contented. It's real cute isn't,t it. Obviously you are a good chicken mama!! I had one hen do it once when she was sitting eggs.
