    We have a black spanish poult who sounds like a duck when he chirps. I've never heard this before, but haven't had this breed before either. The other black spanish poults don't make this sound. Is it an atypical sound, or does he have a problem? Has anyone heard this before? I think he is going to get named "Ducky".

    It not the breed I wouldn't think. I never heard duck sounds from my Black Spanish.

    Could he have something up his nostril or in his throat?
