This is such an awesome page. I recently got my first chickens! They are now four week old buff orpington hens. I am obsessed with them! I started taking them outside for a few hours this past week, and then they come back into the house and sleep in their brooder.  I finally was able to get them a roosting bar put in as well. Tonight, one chick has been chirping SO LOUD all afternoon, and now is being particularly disruptive. She is eating/drinking, has gone to the bathroom. Every time the other four settle down she winds them right back up. Even now as I type I can hear her. This is the first night they have been this restless. Any suggestions? Thanks so much :)
