when do they stop sleeping like they died lol

Just that. At what age do they stop faceplanting and start roosting to sleep. Or at bare minimum sleep standing up.

Chickens never sleep standing up, they always sit or lie down if they don't roost.

Yours will likely stop that mid-run face plant pass out stage after a week or two.

They will not start to roost until they are about 3-5 weeks, and even then it can be sporadic as they like to snuggle.

It's never too early to give them a roost to play on and learn.

Good luck!

Oh they roost constantly! We have various roosts and they love to roost om our arms. They are 14 days olr and have beem roosting for maybe a week. But not to sleep. I just thought that eventually they prefer roosting when they sleep. While awake they love it
