    Mine still sound like chicks. Just wondering around what age their voices begin to change.

    I've waited as long as nine months for a female to announce herself. So it varies.

    Ours are just starting to buckwheat at 8/9 weeks old. They sound so cute! We have 16 adults, 3-8/9 week olds, and 5-2 week olds and more eggs in the incubator! Ours are our Goonie Squad and we love them!

    Mine are @ 7wks now and I'm still waiting for that buckwheat or some sort of guinea-ish sound.
