My baby chicks are a week old now and they are my first. When I take them out to hold them they really seem to want to use my finger as a perch and seem to enjoy "roosting on my finger". I was thinking it might be something they would like in their brooder box. I was wondering if you all had some ideas on the best materials and type of roost I could make for them. I am no carpenter so something simple would be great Also, my littlest chick seems to fall asleep on his feet instead of laying down. Is this normal? Could it have something to do with the fact that I had to clean his butt and put a little vaseline on there? Is he not feeling well? I know he used to snuggle down on the floor to rest and I haven't noticed if he still does. Just noticed today he is closing his eyes and drifting off while standing up.
