    Got baby chicks at 3 days old now they are 5 weeks old and I have one that's always peeping loudly. I don't know the breed. Can anyone tell me why?

    If you post a pic we might be able to tell you the breed and/or gender. Also, what does always mean? When you see them? Peeping in pain? Were they separated from a friend recently? Anything happened that was stressful lately?

    Is it eating?
    Drinking?
    Pooping?
    Check the vent, where the poop comes out, to see if it's plugged up or pasted over.
