    I recently got 2 baby chicks from the pet store, they are normally fine. But about a few days later , one of them keep chirping and looking at me funny. It then flies and crashes itself against my chest every minute or so. Is it attacking, attention wanting, or what. Please help, thanks.

    Hi :welcome Glad you joined the flock. If your chick is eating and drinking ok and pooping as Normal my opinion would be that it's seeking attention. It may have imprinted itself upon you and is seeing you as its mother. If you feel it's sick though I would post in this section

    If your 'baby' doesn't do this while in the brooder, I would agree with Yorkshire coop that it is just some sort of interaction with you. Watch it's food/water intake and check it for 'pasty butt' and watch her grow. keep us posted...
