Should my ten day old chick be flying already? I always assumed they didn't do this until they were a month or so. Right now I have my chicks in several sterilite tubs with sides about twenty inches high or so. One of my babies just flew out. I'm off to find our roll of fencing and some wire cutters, but wondered - Is this early? I wonder how many more surprises I'm in store for until these kids can get outside to the coop.
