    I have a newborn chick that won't be quiet whether it's in the incubator or the brooder,it's a little Prince/Princess!It's a under-sized help-out due to foam suffocating it in the egg while hatching.It's very demanding,bold and a little bully to the other chicks when I put them together! I have given it food and water,made sure it's warm and dry.It has other chicks with it always,in the incubator two are hatching,and the brooder has 5 chicks:2 are a week and 5 days old,and the other 3 were born today before him.So I don't understand yet what it wants,I don't think he is very sick(he acts very healthy). It has opera lungs and complains very loudly when in the brooder,in the incubator only once in a while! I just hope BYC helps me with this,because I'm in serious need of Sleep!![​IMG]

    Good luck...I seem to have one drama queen in every batch of chicks.[​IMG]

    I wish you the best of luck in solving this issue. I have a full grown chicken that has the need to cluck loudly every morning around 6:00 am ... when the sun was up at that time it wasn't that big of a deal ... but now that it is dark ... It seems to bother me more. I find myself going outside to the pen just to "visit" and she seems to calm down. I guess she has me trained [​IMG]

    I had one hatchling that was noisy...mostly whenever I left the room. Turned out to be a cockerel and despite the amount of noise he made when he was little, he's now nearly 5 months and hasn't even tried to crow. He makes no noise at all. Not saying that will happen with yours but there's hope. [​IMG]

    Well It seems the little talker is finally staying quiet![​IMG] I think it just wanted to wait for my other two eggs to hatch,cause it was fine after I put all of them in!It's with the chicks in the brooder now getting along famously with them!It's still a bold little bird,but I think that's just it's personality shining through!
