What kind of sound do your silkies or showgirls make?

    I was just curious, cuz my little Dash sounds like a dolphin. She CAN cluck, but I very seldom hear it, its usually this sound that sounds almost exactly like the dolphin recordings.

    Is that common, or do I just have a strange lil kid/chicken?

    Maybe they are in their squeaky voice stage. :p Mine sound just like all the other birds, just a bit higher pitched!

    I always know when it's Puff (my silkie) carrying on. She has a distinctive high and rusty- sounding voice, like pulling nails out of a piece of wood. [​IMG]

    One of my delawares makes that dolphin sound when she eats. It's so funny to hear her do it. I have a little partridge cockeral that makes a cooing sound that is so cute. At first I thought he had gotten hurt but checked him over and it's just something he does all the time. Sgt. pepper is a cutie pie too.
