I have 4 chicks that are 3 weeks old. I am having the HARDEST time finding much literature on chicks-- most of it seems to be on full grown chickens and the only chick literature refers to their first week and setting up the brooder/etc. I understood that 6 weeks in a brooder was about the norm, and then they can move outside although possibly not nights, if it's still cold. Well, mine are 3 weeks old and they seem like they're getting pretty bored. They have roosts to play on but I can't really think of anything else for a chick to do! They're huge people food fans, so whenever they get too antsy or start antagonizing each other, I'll give them a small dish of treats or people food or something, and that keeps them busy for awhile, then they'll nap, then it starts all over again. They're eating a ton of their own feed in addition to the treats, so I don't think I'm ruining their appetites. What is your experience with this? How big of a space would you expect to be fair for four, 3 week old chicks? They're still quite small, really. They stay in their area, but they're trying to fly now and two of them have figured out how to roost on the edge of the brooder. What's next? I don't want them to get antsy and cranky and start up bad behaviors, but maybe I'm worrying overly much about behavior that's totally normal, just because I'm around and seeing them all day. (They're inside.) Thanks so much for any input!
