plural for chauve-souris?

In one of the quesitons.

Les chauve-souris ne volent pas. 

What is the plural for chauve-souris? Isn't it Chauves-souris, with 's' added on 'Chauve'. The word Chauves-souris (with s) was used in one of the Kwiziq listening exercises. So I am wondering which spelling is correct.

Hi Ted,

Chauve-souris is a feminine noun therefore the plural will be "chauves-souris"

So the quiz question 'Les chauve-souris ne volent pas. ' was wrong then, they need a 's' on chauve. Kwiziq team needs to fix it.
