    Just curious-I don't know exactly how old they are, but the black star chick is fully feathered & as big as my mixed game hens-& still peeping. Any thoughts? Thx...[​IMG]

    Well, my 13 wk old BSL laid today for the first tme and they are all still peeping as far as I can tell. Sounds more like a kazoo.

    They should stop peeping and start sqwuaking at 15-16 weeks.
