I brought home some 2-3 week old FBCM chicks this afternoon. We had a little issue when the lamp for the brooder turned out to be a dud, and I had to FLY to Agway to get a new one. The poor chicks were chilly in our cold basement, so I kept them in the small cat carrier they rode home in hoping that their body heat would get them through. During that time, they cheeped furiously and clearly were not happy. Once we got the new lamp set up, they settled right in to their new little home. They seem a bit skittish, which is understandable since they just left the only home that they've known. I have gone down to check on them several times. Most of the time, they are just hanging out around the lamp, keeping warm. They wander out frequently to get food and water, but they all seem fine. In the last 20 minutes or so, they are cheeping a lot again. They don't sound distressed like they did earlier (when they were cold). They're just really chatty. This question might sound silly, but I am BRAND new to this. Is it normal for them to be this chatty right now?? Or is that a sign that something is wrong?? I am raising chicks for the first time in winter, so I'm really freaked out about making sure I do everything right.
