Ok I bought Bieliflder chicks back in September, so they are about 12 weeks old . They are very nice chicks but a little dumb . I can’t get them to go into the coop at night, if they are with my other chicks they hide in the corner , they don’t dust bathe,they really don’t have any chicken traits. Is this the norm for this breed?

Ooh, I don't know but I will be interested in seeing what experienced owners have to say. I have been eyeing them in a hatchery catalog and considering adding some to my flock. I already have enough "dumb" chickens. Two of mine -- a Buckeye and a Welsummer -- seem incapable of walking into a coop at night without lots and lots of "help," On the other hand, I guess they've trained me to give them special attention, so maybe they aren't so dumb.
