My 4 week old road red hen was making some weird noises today. Then I realized that it sounded like clucking. Instead of her normal cheep cheep I heard cheecluck and cluk cluk. It didn't quite sound like the noises that grown chicks make but it was definetly a clucking sound. What is happening? Is this normal? Is my baby growing up and getting her "big girl" voice?

I dunno. Mine didn't get theirs until they were at least 2 months old but she could be an early bloomer.

My 6 week old bantams have started making clucky noises too. Only the last 3 days or so, every once in a while you hear one. They went out to their coop today

MY Naked Necks must be retarded. Only one of the 17 week olds has started to sound like a hen...the other two still cheep.

I've noticed that even the 'clucker' reverts to cheeping when I am around to beg for food. Maybe their cheeping is just their way of seeking sympathy from mum (me) to get treats......
