is this normal for baby chicks?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello! I'm new here but have occasionally stumbled back here for advice and tips so..! Nice to meet y'all!

So we have gotten two new chicks and they couldn't be any different!(in color too!) The yellow one just eats and eats and is definitely more lively. I mean everytime we look he's eating! The black one, on the other hand lies down alot? He wont sleep but just lies down often. Occasionally eats or drinks but not as lively. Almost lazy little guy.
Just curious is this normal? Could the black one be sick? I understand as babies they do this but just seems like alot.. Our previous ones were so different from these O_O

Again, I enjoy this site and nice to meet you guys!

Do you have any pictures of the black chick? If its eyes are half closed, and its weak it could be sick. But by your description it sounds like its just normal

Pics? With your description of the white one constantly eating, it could be a Cornish X.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

It was finally warm enough so we took them out. Thankfully the black one moved around alot! I'm still worried since compared to his fluffy yellow friend his feathers look messy and missing? It could be old feathers falling off but I'm not sure hmm.png

Looks like a healthy, normal Silver Laced Wyandotte.
