    I have never had such loud baby chicks before. They have fresh food and water that is easily ascessible to any of them. And the temp is good too. Not huddled up either. They did lose a few chicks being shipped but other than that I cant think of a darn thing.

    Anybody?

    Being really noisey ususally mean that they are uncomfortable. Make sure they're not too hot...

    I generally think loud= cold.

    Lower your light a bit and put it over just one corner so they can come and go to regulate their temps.

    I guess cold as well. Mine only chirped for about 15 mins ...just before they fell asleep at night but this was only after they were about a month or so old. Unless they were chilly.
