I have two WS chicks that are about 3 or 4 weeks old that have been crying almost constantly. They have plenty of food and water, they have a heat source and are in a plastic bin that's covered (not completely so air will circulate) the only other thing is that the hay is a little dirtier than usual because they didn't get to go outside today. It was too cold for them to go out. I have tried holding them and letting them sleep on me and they were quiet for a little while and really really wanted to stay but I really really had to get up. Last time I did this I had 4 babies and somehow they were quieter and less messy. These two produce more poop and go through more food than the last four combined. What is up with that?? Could it be that the two of them just can't keep each other warm enough? Obviously an excuse to get more Looks like I'll be making a trip to the feed store tomorrow unless someone tries to stop me. *sigh* go ahead, someone stop me.
