I have a very odd question or not, we are talking chickens right?
We have 6 chicks we picked up last weekend. 4 are Americauna x and approx 8 weeks old.
I have them inside a shed at the moment because they have not been outside yet from what I understand from the seller. They have a light bulb on a timer and know all about light. I am hoping to get them outside this weekend, however:
The last few days have been really bright and sunny around here. The two biggest birds are doing something very odd. Everytime I open the door and they get sun light in the eyes, they get all confused and start trying to stand on top of the other chicks. They then fall over to one side and lay down. They do it every time I open the door and sunlight touches them! This may make it hard to put them outside this weekend to get a little sun.
Anyone ever seen this before?
