Mine feel skinny to me too. They are two weeks old and the last few days I have tried oatmeal cooked and dry, strawberries, yogurt, lettuce....they don't want anything to do with any of it. I was hoping to put a little meat on them skinny little bones.

They are eating and drinking and very active so I guess I shouldnt worry but I am a new Mom, what else would I do?

Mine also "chirp" a lot. One does it almost constantly and the other two respond here and there. They do it mostly when I let them out to play. It's the most adorable sound. You're right though, sounds kinda like a little bird song. I think it means they're happy

Several of my girls 'sing' also. They seem to do it most when they are content...like after they have just eaten, got water and some attention...

It is like a rolling chirp sound...that is the only way I can describe it.
