Hi all, I am a BRAND new backyard flock parent, and I just picked up my 3 (1 americauna 1 plymouth barred rock & 1 rirx) 5week old chicks today!!! They chirped in the box the whole way home and they haven't stopped since. They ate 2 bowls of mash and I saw 2 out of 3 peck at the chicken nipple water bottle, but the lights have been out for about 30 min and it INCREASED the volume. They are warm enough, they are fed, there are no drafts, and I've locked my dog and cat in my bedroom with me. They are still chirping. Sometimes it's shrill but it is constant Is this normal?!? I know they must be stressed and the chirping doesn't bother me so much as i'm worried that there's something wrong and I don't speak chicken yet. They seem to increase the volume when it's dark and they jockey for huddle position in the far corner of the brooder. They are 3 out of about 30 chicks that were being housed together outside so I'm hoping it's just that this is a really big change for them and they'll settle down in time??? Also, it's a new number of them, so they might be figuring out their positions in their new, smaller flock??? When should I worry??? Thanks!!!! This has been an 8-10 month process preparing for the moment I picked them up, so it's a really big deal to me. I want them to be happy, healthy and well cared for.
