    I have a very sweet EE chick that...let's just say...might be a little bit too much attached to me. While all of her siblings are quietly chirping about the brooder or sleeping, Sammie chirps LOUDLY all day and night long, unless I come over to the brooder. She's only quiet when she can see me. I adore her, but it's starting to drive me crazy. There isn't a place in the house where I can't hear her. I'm thinking of moving all the chicks to the coop. They're just past 3 weeks, the weather here is warm, but I plan to move the lamp as well. Will this be traumatic for her? Will her loud chirping attract every predator in the tri-county area? Is there a way to calm her in the house, outside of letting her live on my shoulder?

    Have you tried getting her a feather duster hung upside down with the feathers just touching the litter so she can snuggle under it? Worth a try.
