    This hatch of chicken has scared me one too many times. 3 of the 12 chicks seem to like to lay on their backs and sleep. I am forever going in and thinking they've died. I've never seen anything like it.

    Oh my, she looks dead as a doornail.

    I'm convinced that's what mine will do since I'm already worried and they aren't even here. I'll probably ruin any sleep they try to get.

    When I was a baby, just adopted, my Mom woke me up so much to make sure I was alive that she broke me of sleeping through the night in a week! I think I'll do the same thing to chickens.

    I have a little White Crested Polish who is continually falling over on her back when she tries to preen her feathers. She will lay there and peep loudly until I come put her upright. I have even heard her in the middle of the night and had to come to her rescue! She is a week old now and she hasn't done it for a couple of days thank heavens! I hope shes outgrown it!

    I have never seen a chick sleep on its back, that is just too funny.
