    I am just curious when do they stop peeping and start clucking. Mine are 8 weeks old and once in a while we hear a grown up chicken noise but rarely.

    I can't believe they can lay at 5 months. There must be a lot of big changes coming fast. [​IMG]

    Mine peeped and then chirped and one honked then they clucked at about 4-5 months.

    I have some 9 week old chicks that are starting to sound like chickens sometimes. The rest of the time they just peep [​IMG]
