    Holy Loud Chick, Batman! Seriously, if I didn't know better, I'd swear I have one chick that has colic. Every time we come inside from the porch she starts chirping in THE LOUDEST chirp I've ever heard. She's got 3 sisters in there. The temp is right at 95 and no one acts chilly or hot. Butts are clean. Food and water freshened.

    Do I keep picking her up or let her cry it out??? Should I be Ferberizing these chicks? Have I spoiled them already? OMG... it's the first night with my DS all over again!

    (And yes, I feel a little silly posting this but I'm telling you... LOUD... amazingly loud!)
