Our yellow chicks keep messing with their feathers doesn’t that mean they’re stressed?? If so I don’t know what they would be stressed out about maybe the feeling of moving?? We just got them 2 days ago and they’re 4 days old when we got them.

Messing with their own feathers? Other chick's feathers?

If it's their own it's grooming, and you'll see that a lot as more feathers come in, because it's a bit itchy/irritating to have all these new feathers popping up.
