How often do baby chicks sleep? - Page 2

post #11 of 20

Thanks!jumpyjumpyjumpy

They are so cute right now, I love it when they spread their little necks out when they sleep on the ground.  My BF is going to make a small roost for them this weekend.

Thanks again!

I have a Brabanter chick that sleeps a lot more than others. She eats and drinks, and stuff, but while others are scratching around in the brooder, she just sleeps. Is this normal?

I happen to have a few pictures of my Jersey Giant chicks passed out after feeding frenzy which is their favorite post-feeding frenzy activity. Sometimes whilst still at the feed tray.

 

 Enjoy.

Thanks!!idunno.gif



Maybe i'm just being a little to over protective/worried.

Maybe it's because shes really active she seems to nap more
