Why do my chicks keep digging in there cage are they stressed?
They are "bathing" or scratching.
. Could they be dust bathing?
I think that is just their natural instincts kicking in - scratching in the dirt then scooting back a step or two to find bugs to eat! I was fascinated when mine started doing it - no mama to teach them - just wired that way!
Alright thank you, just making sure nothing was wrong this is my first time raising them
Ya mine do it all the time. They kick their bedding into their water and I always have to clean it out :/ but they aren't stressed just exploring
Yeah I have to change there water constantly cause they kick everything in it, there fun critters to watch hah
I will put a small wood platform for the feeder and waterer so they cant kick anything into it.
Mine do it all the time,them girls sure can make a mess lol.
