    We've had chicks for a few days now and I've noticed that they make a lot of different noises! Loud peeping, chirriping noises (kinda like crickets), and excited sounding peeps. Does anyone have a guide or something for chick noises? I've looked and couldn't find anything! Our chicks are super snuggly and friendly and I'd love to know more about them :)

    Just observe and you'll get to know what sound means what. Be especially tuned in to loud peeping when it is combined with piling up in a corner because it may mean they are in distress somehow (like too cold) or hungry.

    Hi, they continue to make different sounds as they grow.
    My 7 girls are 10-12 wks old and 2 have started to honk, it sounds sooo funny!

    I agree, just spending time with them you will learn what their peeps mean. One of my six pullets sounded like a turkey or a goose [​IMG]
