    Hello everyone,

    I just moved my ten day old chicks into a bigger brooder (they were starting to fly and seemed to be getting agitated by the smaller space). But since they've moved in (just a few hours) they've not stopped chirping loudly (not all ten of them -- maybe just two or three). The temperature seems fine (they're spread out in the brooder). is this just a normal adjustment, or is there something I should be looking for that might be out of balance?

    Thanks!

    Nope, sounds like you've made alot of progress and you're taking great care of your chicks! They should be happy birdies ;)
