    Does anybody know what could cause a chicks chirp to sound different or weird compared to normal ? Almost like she’s sick or plugged up, it kind of sounds broken up . She’s about 2 months old. I first noticed about a week ago .

    Can you post a video of the chirping? (upload videos to youtube or vimeo, then provide us a link - the BYC upload does not work)

    Changes in how a chick sounds can be a number of things from the beginning of illness to the start of getting their "adult voice". Check her nostrils to make sure they are not plugged up with dirt or feed.

    Look forward to hearing her.
