    I have one chick that I'm guessing may be a cockerel who is 4 1/2 weeks old, 5 weeks on Monday, that has stopped peeping like the rest and is making a sound like "chook, chook". Took me picking each up to eliminate who was making that sound. I always know when that one is talking! Is this a normal progression to it's grown up voice? [​IMG]

    It doesn't look like a rooster at the moment, it is probably just finding it's adult voice.

    They go from one day peeping to the next day clucking. It doesn't mean it's a cockerel, and by the looks of the pale comb, it's a pullet.
