Peeping chick

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have 18 chick that are about a week to 2 weeks old. Five different breeds but are all brown egg layers. One of them peeps all the time. I have tried different feeds and waterers. There is enough space and the heating is right. None of the other chicks are having any problems and "Peep" seems healthy but just peeps all the time. Its not loud but its like little chirps in sets of 3 or 4 peeps if that makes sense. Like I said its the only one out of 18 that does it. Does anyone have any idea on why its doing this? It will stop for a little bit if I hold it for a while.

Have you checked for pasty butt? Is she eating and drinking ok? If she's smaller than the others, maybe she's being picked on? Those are a few of the things I'd be checking out. Maybe some of the other greeters will have other ideas.

Maybe she is too hot or too cold.  Sometimes you just get one like that,  talks or complains all the time.

No pasty butt. Eating and drinking fine and it about the same size as the others.

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. Good luck with your girl. I hope it's nothing serious.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
