    Hi guys,
    My pullets are weeks into being productive egg-laying hens!

    One of my hens, Willow, has been laying for a month and seems to have a raspy voice...she has had this before when she was younger, is it normal?

    You'll find that individual chickens have their own voice. Roosters have their own unique crow, and hens have their own unique clucks and bawks. Just wait until you hear a Polish crested hen belting out her personal anthem to the world! lol
