At the risk of exposing my complete lack of experience: At what age do chicks generally start clucking instead of chirping? I have five 6 week old chicks. Tonight while they were getting comfortable in their hen house I heard the usual chirping and squabbling for the best spots. Then I heard what I thought was an early attempt at crowing. After freaking out that I had a rooster (I can't legally have them, I'd have to get rid of him) I realized that it was probably just a more grown up cluck instead of the chick chirp! These are my first chickens so I don't really know what to expect. I would imagine at 6 weeks the difference between hens are roosters would be fairly obvious, but I'm not sure. I'm 90% sure that I don't have a rooster, but can anyone reassure me please?!
