    What age about do pullets stop peeping and start making boking noises? I have 10 pullets who hatched the 2nd week of august and they are still peeping.

    The sound of the peeping usually changes around 9-10 weeks of age in my experience but doesn't immediately go to a grown up cluck. I have some that hatched the third week of August and for the past couple of weeks they've been making a kind of deep, hoarse peep sound, as though they are losing their voices.

    I had that with 6 of the girls about 10-12 weeks old but 10 of these girls are still peeping loudly
