so i have 3 baby silkies, all from the same place, all bought at the same time. i have two that seem perfectly content in their bin with their food, water, and vitamin water. i use pine shavings for the bedding which i scoop twice a day and they have a red bulb heat lamp for warmth. i even put a teddy bear in the corner. now these chicks are used to being handled, both by me and my daughter, and seem very friendly and affectionate. except for one…i have checked for pasty butt, i have looked for evidence of worms, i have moved the lamp farther and closer…but one never shuts up! he chirps ALL THE TIME. except at night. and they are kept in my master bath closet, so that the window will shine some natural light on them. what do i do? i thought maybe he wanted to be with me and that's what all the fuss was about, but even when i am holding him, blanketing him with my hands for warmth, he still won't hush. is there anything else i can try?
