    Yesterday I heard a squeaky noise come from one of the chicks but I thought maybe it was a sneeze. But the more I listen the more I hear a honking sound. Should I be concerned??

    I don't know--but everyone has their own sound I guess. Hope nothing is wrong. [​IMG]

    I have a pullet named Turkey (she looks and sounds like a turkey). She honks. Sounds like a squeaky honk.

    Edited because what I wrote before made NO sense. HEHE!!!

    When my RIR's "voice" changed at about 12 weeks, she honked. It was pretty funny sounding!

    My chicks are about 15 weeks. I can't tell which one is doing it. If I stand nearby I hear nothing but as soon as I walk away I hear it. I am certain our rare freebie from MM is a rooster but the others do not showing any roo characteristics. I guess I was afraid that one had a cold or got something stuck ( we have been throwing in various scraps-all veggie)

    One of my hens has a honk sound. It sounds like a gazoo. I think when she dives into her mash she might get some of the powdery food up her shnoz, then she honks. I usually see her at her food dish when this happens.
