    Yes, very normal. Practically everybody thinks their chicks are laying dead on the brooder floor at some point the first time they rise a brood. The chicks stretch out and you'd swear they are dead, but they will hop up if you disturb them.

    Don't feel bad, most of us have fallen for that once.
