    Do chicken's voices change as they mature?

    My girls will be 10 weeks old on Tues.
    Up until now they've only cheep cheeped, but today every once in a while, Honey would make a deeper cheep-ishy sound.
    Sort of a strangled sound.
    She doesn't act sick...she just sounds like a teen-aged boy! [​IMG]

    The go from peeping to clucking to this kinda low growl thing, I think the growl is left over from when they used to be Tyranosaurs. [​IMG]
