    I always say one of mine sounds like a duck that is being strangled when she loses sight of her sister...[​IMG]

    I have noticed some of my girls make honking sounds on
    occasions. I think it must be normal.

    I don't know how old your chicken is, but I have a 17 week old pullet that has honked like a goose for several weeks now. She has finally started sounding more like a chicken as she has gotten older. If I didn't know better I would think the feed store mislabled her, but she is a beautiful production red.

    I have two honkers, of my 17. Well, a few still sound like youngsters, so I may still get another.

    I have a red star named Radishwho honks. I have never heard her make a peep, a cluck, an egg song...nothing. Just honks. It's her language and it makes her special.
