I have had the chicks around two weeks. First the wasps, the WD-40 seems to have worked. I used is sparingly. I put the chicks in their chicken house so they would have room to run. I live in Central Texas and the weather is mild. The chicks are getting their wing and tail feathers. Does this make them itchy? They seem to groom a lot at times.

Yep, new feathers coming in are itchy:)

Do they have access to any dirt? If you are confining them to the coop for growing out, place a dish pan of dirt from your run inside the coop so they can take a dust bath.
