    My girls are almost 13 weks old and are starting to change over to clucks....they are in between atm with a pe-uck noise....

    My 2 older girls, they started changing their voices differently. I remember my late BR Boo started changing her voice about 9-10 weeks...and my EE's <the ones i have now> were a bit later in changing.

    Thanks for the reply, this is my first attempt at chickens as an adult I havent been around chickens since I was in high school, and that was many many years ago.

    What a great question - I never thought about this! [​IMG]

    I've got an 11 week old black australorp pullet at the moment, still peeping, and it hadn't occured to me to think about when she might get a grown-up voice! Does anyone know when australorps tend to start to cluck?
