so I took my 6 chicks out in the yard to get some sun and eat ants, they are about 5-6 weeks old.
they started laying on one side & holding one wing out then they jump up and run a little.

one did it first, I thought she loss her footing, but then all the others started doing it.
I have noticed every time one learns a trick they all start doing it... but any clue what they are doing?

Thanks, Mike

Soaking up the sun exposing as much of their body to the heat as possible. and being cute.

Sunning themselves or also could be dust bathing position.

Chicks sure can put themselves in odd positions, especially in sleep.
