    only they aren't geese. Is it normal for chickens to honk? They are 11 weeks old, so they still peep some and they cluck some. But, honking??? And all 4 of them are doing it, even the sex links, so it's not early attempts at crowing....[​IMG]

    My RIR honks. She has a very hoarse voice. It started about a week or two ago. I wonder if it's a puberty thing??? I dunno, these are my first chickens.

    Mine are about 9-10 weeks and have been honking for a couple days or so.
