Is it normal for baby chicks 2 weeks old to chirp a lot and what does it mean .
Do they need a hear lamp I was told no where I got them
When I put to sleep I cover them with a blanket is that good

I would still provide a heat lamp, but it all depends on where you live. They need to be around 98% to keep warm.

You might want it for the nights. Otherwise they should be fine. A loud bird= healthy bird

South Western Death Valley, Ca.
It is plenty warm there so really not much heat would be needed
as they do huddle to keep warm ...

The only chirping to be worried about is the distress chirp and
that is way different then the normal chirp you always hear ..
