Sounds more like a cross between a crow and a goose!!

    We have a 3 month old SP plymouth rock pullet who does not sound like a typical chicken. She does not have the sweet little bawk-bawks or tweets like the other chickens we have. She sounds more like shes honking like a goose!!! Sounds terrible! Is this normal for that breed? She was our only plymouth rock pullet out of 10 chicks that we ordered (just our luck, we were after hens and eggs) Could something be wrong with her??

    Our 3 month old Australorps sound like geese right now too. Their voices go through changes just like teenagers. [​IMG]

    Thanks to everyone who replied!!! It's nice to know that she is not the only honking chicken out there. She is definitely a pullet and a great little chicken at that!!
