    They are all standing around hunched up heads tucked next to shoulders tail out or down. But they all act normal. Peaning, eating, scratching, etc. Sprouting feathers, baby fuzz on the ends still. The way they stand around reminds me of pics of Chicks with Cocci, but poo looks normal......Is this normal....?

    They would huddle, if they were cold. My feeling is, that when a chickens tail is down fairly consistently, than something is wrong. If they stand like that sometimes, it is probably nothing.

    I agree w/ LAG that they look fine based on that pic. Is there one in that pic that shows the stance you've desccribed?
