    I have 6 EE chicks that are almost 6 weeks old...they are happy and about to go out to the bigger grow pen. One...squawks rather than peeps! I think it's a he...he comes up to me and has a conversation--it isn't that he's alarmed or anything. He's definitely not crowing. He seems healthy --is this normal? I'm not very experienced and hope nothing is wrong! Any opinions?
