    I have 15 two day old chicks. All seem very happy and healthy scratch around taking naps eating and drinking well. I have one chick that peeps very loudly and constantly. All the other peep but not loud. It's not a shrill peep it's just loud. Is this little girl ok or is she in some sort of distress? No pasty butt. Seems to be eating and drinking. I am Just a little worried. [​IMG]
    The little black Dominique chick on the left is the loud peeper.
    Also she was the only one I was worried about when I first got her. She was weaker than the rest.

    I wouldn't worry unless she stops eating or drinking, or is lethargic. She just may be reacting to the instinct of wanting a chicken mom.

    Hi and [​IMG] ! You could give all of the new chicks some Save-A-Chick vitamins. You can get it at Tractor Supply and you would add it to their water. You could also add some ACV (apple cider vinegar) to the water. Watch to make sure her poop looks normal. You are a good momma for these new babies [​IMG]

    I have this exact situation right now too! My loudmouth is a buff orpington. Maybe your reply is right, because mine quiets if I go talk to her[​IMG]
