    A couple of mine started doing low "cluck cluck" noises about 4 days ago - and my flock is about 10 weeks old

    Not sure who is doing it, and it came out of the blue as quite a surprise ...

    I've noticed it starting to change at about 13 weeks on some of mine. My slower maturing breeds take longer though.
