about hold old till the cute peeping turns to regular chicken noise?
I don't really pay close attention to when the actual sound changes occur, however I do know as they get closer to laying age, the pullets get more clucky sounds instead of peeping. I have some around 14 weeks making the more clucky sounds now.
awww. cute so its like teenagers, when those hormones start raging and they start getting all reproductive like their voice changes LOL!
My older (9 weekish) just don't make much noise. The incessant talking just stops, for me. When they do 'talk' it's more of a cluck.
I was wondering about this too! I have two pullets that were supposed to be the same age (6 weeks) but one is much bigger and is much quieter. The smaller one peeps incessantly and very loudly.
Also, is there a difference between male and female sounds at this age?
We have a sweet joke about this... Our Jersey Giants are about 11 weeks old, and have gone from Peep Peep to Yup Yup... one clucked when I picked her up yesterday and surprised herself.
Personally, I love the YupYup stage...
Quote:If you have a rooster, one of the all time funniest things in the whole chicken-raising experience is when they first start to crow... ours sound like someone jumped on a whoopee cushion. It just SLAYs me. Otherwise, no, they're really all quite the same.
Mine started making "chicken" noises, clucking, bawking, and cooing at about 9 or 10 weeks. I love listening to them.
I think it would be cool if one of them was a rooster. Call me crazy but I've always wanted to wake up to the sound of crowing in the morning. I'm sure my neighbors would not think it would be as charming as I would.
As there are currently no chicken ordinances, I'm sure it wouldn't be long before some would be drafted if I did have a rooster.
my chickens don't really cluck, they kinda growl at me.
