    I just had a chick hatch after being pipped for 2 days. I finally got out on its own and it won't shut up! At first it was cute but now it's 11 pm and I want to go to bed and it's REALLY loud.
    Why is it being so loud? I've never had a chick this loud before. And will it stop when the next chick hatches? Is it just lonely?

    It probably IS lonely. Can you put a small stuffed animal in with it or a small covered hot water bottle for it to cuddle up to til it gets a hatched buddy? They also chirp a lot when hungry/thirsty.
