    It definately was not what I would call a crow. Sounded nothing like "Cock a doodle do!!" It was more of a flustered, irritated yell, sounded just like "Ba Gawk!".What do you think? It's the same "barred rock pullet" chick that I've posted about before, questioning the sex not based on coloring, as "she" is dark, but "her" comb is a bit larger than her sister, and a little pinker too. They're about 8 weeks old now.

    Yes but mine mostly do that when they've laid an egg. That is definitely what they say.

    That's exactly what they say!

    At that age, sometimes they're just trying out their new voices, but it can also be an alarm call of some sort if they think they're in danger.
