Hi! I have new chick that is only quiet when I hold it on my chest under a heating pad. It's sooooo loud otherwise. He was fine yesterday but today he/she has been extra needy and chirpy! I don't even know what kind it is. .
Could be simply a needy chick, or it could be am indication of a problem. I see she has friends, so she's not lonely, how is her poop? Any pasty butt? Eating and drinking okay? Not acting lethargic? Brooder a good temp?
Hi. This has been chirpy since we bought it. However, it's tiny and loves being warm and always wants to be under the others. And today it was acting weak. It's drinking, eating, pooping. Maybe she's cold? But the brooder is warm. I think needy might be right.
