Hi everyone, I am new to chicken raising and scour this site almost daily for info! There are some things i can find... How do i know if the noises my chickens are making are happy or mad noises?! I have a light Brahma, NH Red, EE and Barred Rock. All four are 13 weeks old. The Rock is the bravest, most curious and most grumbly of the bunch. She seems angry all the time and has pecked me but also lets me pick her up and seems to like when i talk to her. I didnt expect them to be so vocal and would like to get to know them better... they are all so different! The EE now makes a high pitched noise like shes startled... or sneezed. It sounds like a dog toy being squeaked! No one else has ever made this noise and i dont see anything else about her that leads me to think she is sick. Sometimes when shes about to run she makes the squeak. Lastly, these girls dont like most veggies! I guess its a good thing so they eat a better diet of crumbles and bugs. Does this change as they get older? They actually walked away from a pile of dried mealworms to eat the crumbles! Here are a couple videos so you can hear them: We are at the tail end of storm Hermine here in New England so you will see a wind block in the lower run, small branches and leaves everywhere! I had just filled their chick grit bowl and walked away when i heard Dixie make that noise. Also, some slight grumblings from the barred rock, she is much grumpier especially in the morning! I could only get a growl in the first couple seconds. Shes usually objects quite a bit when i step into her yard! You will hear Dixie squeak again while picking a fallen twig. She sounds so mad when i pick her up! Thanks for any insight!
