I have three, 7 week old dominique "pullets". One makes a freakish velociraptor-ish squack/squeek sound when i pick it up, or when i walk near the brooder...
Why?

Is this an attemped crow? Is my cassie a "cassinova"?

my rooster makes that noise in addition to his crow. none of my hen ever have. haven't figured out if he's putting them on alert or chewing me out, he only does it when i am not in their area but in his sight.

It sounds like a babyish attempt at the predator alarm. It could be a cockerel or it could be the top pullet if there is no cockerel.

I agree with "gritsar". Sounds like you may have a Roo or a dominant pullet.
