    hi, i have an 11 week old lavender araucana pullet who has started to honk like a goose! she does this if something scares her, but also if she gets a treat she really likes, or sometimes just to hear herself... is this normal? i have 7 other chickens and they look at her like she just landed from outer space when she does this... none of them honk.

    [​IMG] One of my little BOs would honk like a goose, too. It was startling.

    I have a RIR the exact same age who honks alot every evening when they're about to go inside to roost. At that age, you will hear their voices starting to change over to "Big Girl" clucking, too.
