    If they are in the house and listening to TV, I can think of several shows that would have me asleep nine minutes after the show comes on.

    I obviously don't know enough about your conditions to even hazard a guess why they are keeping a schedule. As long as they are healthy and active when awake, I would not be concerned about it.

    If you can try to keep them on that schedule makes life easier later on but the babies grow up and then they become teenagers and we know they have no schedule or
    they just don't listen either. LOL [​IMG]

    My 11 chicks seem to all go to sleep at the same time at night, or at least within a couple minutes of each other. During the day, most will go to sleep for naps but one or two will stay awake and be trouble-makers, but at night it's "lights out" for everybody.

    We have 5 chicks and they all take naps together and go to sleep at night all cuddled up together.
    They are 1 week to 3.5 weeks old and have always slept this way - always like 3 weeks is a long time ha!
