My new SLW chick is sooo loud! She’s 2-3 days old now and has an Australorp friend who is near inaudible compared to her. On the first night we had them I decided to put in an old sweatshirt that they could cuddle up against, and that’s been working pretty well for the time being. They sleep in there like they would under a broody hen, but when not sleeping, the SLW is screaming! I don’t think it’s anything health related. They have plenty of food and water, and she’s been eating and drinking just fine. She’s not hunching like she has Cocci, and her vent looks very clear. She has been passing less bowel movements than the other chick, but the ones she has passed look perfectly healthy. I don’t think it has anything to do with me either. She screams as soon as she wakes up and doesn’t stop regardless if I’m there or not. She lets me pick her up and that quiets her down for a few seconds until she wants to be put back again- then the screaming continues until she gets tired and goes to bed. Could it maybe be the absence of a heat lamp? We’ve been using a heat pad instead of a heat lamp for fire safety reasons, along with a space heater that brings the room up to about 75-80 degrees. There’s only natural light entering the room as our light bulb seemed to increase pecking on the first day- we haven’t had a problem with pecking since. Is it possible she could just be a little fussy? Could she be bored? These feel like behaviors that a solo chick would have, but she’s got a friend who is doing wonderfully so far. And to think that I thought SLWs were one of the quieter breeds, haha! Thank you in advance. This site has always been super helpful .
