    Are you sure they're trying to chirp? If you pick them up do they chirp? What's the temp. In your brooder? If chicks are too hot they will open their mouths and pant.. maybe that's what they're doing??
     
  3. How old are they, where have you been keeping them. Temperatures where they are kept? What breed? What foods, how long have you had them? What breed

    Yes i am sure they are trying to chirp. Sometimes when they try to chirp, i hear faint chirping. I can also confirm that they are trying to chirp by looking at their beaks. When i picked them up, i heard really faint chirps. I cant understand ur question of what is the temp. in ur brroder.

  5. As stated above if they are to hot they will open mouth breathe which could look like chirping Put them in a cooler area and just see in about 10 minutes or so if they quit.

  6. Do these chicks show any other symptoms. Weakness not eating or drinking.? Are they active?

    I dont know about their age because i brought them from the market. But it seems like they are probably 9-12 days old. I have instaaled a fan to keep the temperature low.

    Yes. They seem to get inactive. They close there eyes and try to chirp. But then sometime later continue to eat and drink
     
  9. Brooder is for young chicks what is the age It is hard to diagnose something without out knowing some specifics

    I am sure that they are chirping. When i held the chick close to my ear,i heard really light chirps. The chirps i heard were not normal though. They were rash
