    I had an Ameraucana start at 3 DAYS old. That was a record here. His little "squeak with intention" was so disappointing. I was hoping for a pullet.

  8. My Australorp roo and five pullets are nine weeks old and are just now changing over from peeping. No crow yet and not really a cluck, but it doesn't sound as silly as peeping. They have been completely feathered for weeks, are very big, but they still peeped like they were a day old, still talking baby talk.

    I am new to this. Is the sound of the crow distinctive? I have two buff orpington's and one is on the "watch" list for being a roo as opposed to the pullet the store sold me!!
