And I'm going crazy! Their peeps are EARSPLITTING. This is not the first batch of chicks I've raised at all, so I know to see if they are hot/cold, out of food and water, scared, etc. Everything is fine as far as I can tell. They have a heat lamp on their wire cage, and they can get totally out from under the light of the lamp or get warm directly underneath it. Their body language doesn't seem like they are cold or anything, they won't even go under the lamp. They aren't panting and laying down either. They're acting normal, walking around, and doing that hysterical and loud peep-cry. They have plenty of mash and fresh water. Their bedding is clean and dry--they're on newspaper with a layer of paper towels and a few pine shavings scattered on top. They're about two weeks old, all healthy and have wings that are feathered out now. What could be wrong? They've been peeping loudly for several hours non-stop. By far this is the loudest batch of chicks I have ever raised, no idea why. But usually they aren't quite THIS loud. Help! The peeping is loud in my entire house, even with the doors closed. It's insanely loud. I am at a loss as to what else I can do...why are they crying?? My ears are ringing. They are falling asleep standing up while peeping, the poor things look so pathetic.
