If the chick’s asleep do NOT under any circumstances wake her up!! When she is awake she makes this noise that sounds like a cricket. She makes it ALL DAY. I seriously do not know how she still has a voice at the end of the day. It isn’t a distressed unhappy sound just a constant cricket sound. (Trust me I know her distressed sound lol) She is just very opinionated and chatters constantly. I love her to bits.
