    This is my first hatch EVER! So far out of 10 eggs, I have three chicks completely hatched. I was curious chicks have been out and walking for several hours but have not fluffed up at all. They are very sticky and their feathers are hardish. Is this normal?? Thanks for your help! I looked all over the interenet and watched videos, but no ones elses chicks seem to look like mine?
