    My two girls are about 7 weeks and still squeak. When do they start to sound like "hens" and by that I mean make that adorable little clucking sound? Just curious. People here are such a great resource.

    It varies...my two BO boys were still refusing to cluck by the age of 17 weeks. They 'honked' for weeks instead, which just sounded ridiculous [​IMG]

    The last batch of chicks on the other hand were clucking by 13 weeks. Are they still cheeping or have they started the 'honking' yet? [​IMG]

    My others started around 3/4 months old. Right now my babies are 2 months and still peeping. [​IMG] [​IMG]
