Hi there. I'm pretty new to backyard chicken raising, but I have three (seemingly healthy) Americauna hens in my backyard. They are about four and a half months old and I raised them from week one. Dusty has started laying already, but my question is about Peaches. She makes a really strange hissing/growling noise, usually when she first sees me. It doesn't seem aggressive or scary, but I can't figure out if it's normal or what. It's a kind of raspy, drawn out noise that lasts for a second or two at a time. As if she's saying "hhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy". It's the kind of noise I would expect from a chicken who's had a long time smoking habit. Anyways, I searched the forums a bit but am not convinced that it's perfectly normal. Anyone else know what I'm talking about?
