    I have eleven new chicks, all are really quiet birds. Three dark Brahmas, a silver polish, a blue polish, a partridge Cochin, a gold sebright, a cali grey, a Dominique, a Rhode Island Red, and a Turken. The chicks are great, all sweet and nice to each other, but my biggest brahma is peeping excessively. She's very, very loud and I can't find out why. Their food is unmoulded, water is always fresh, chicken fluff is clean, not too hot/cold, but she seems to be very, very vocal.
    I can only seem to get her to calm down when she lays on me under a little bit of weight, she's very sweet, but I'm slightly worried that something may be wrong with her. She does have a knick on her nose, but it hasn't changed for the worse, only healed some.

    Does anyone have any advice for me and my baby?

    I think maybe she is scared if she has been taken away from her mothet and wants to be cuddled like she would under her mother. She sounds like a cutie!! I wouldn't be worried.

    @Leah567Hopefully that's it! She's wonderful otherwise, I just hate seeing her distressed. I wish I didn't have to leave her for school [​IMG]
