    I was feeding and talking to my Red Stars this morning and along with their little baby peeps I heard a "bwaaAAACK!!!" They are 12 weeks old and I was wondering if I would ever hear an actual chicken sound from them. I thought I just had quiet chickens.

    I have been trying to upload pics I got of my girls today to the computer but can't figure this whole Linux thing out.
