    I am a first timer, but my chickens just started clucking within the last few weeks. They are 16-17 weeks old.

    I'm a first-timer also, mine are 10 weeks old. A couple have started to cluck, one has started a quiet bwwaaaak, and they all still peep. Enjoy your peeps.

    I was wondering the answer to this as well, my 3 older sexlink girls and my 4 orpingtons all started clucking around 2 months old and it didn't take long to get to bawking, maybe another week. In fact the orps just turned 2 months old this week and have been clucking about 1 week now, so maybe more like 7 weeks for them . . . .

    My older pullets are 17 weeks, and while they mostly cluck at each other, they do still make a peeping noise at each other when they're doing certain activities; like dust bathing.

    Mine must be late bloomers, they started making big girl noises at about 18-20 weeks old.
