    Yup. Just like normal babies.

    They go, run low on battery charge and pass out where they stand.

    Very cute and entertaining.

    Just wait until they do the rubber chicken imitation. Makes my heart stop every time I see one of them do that.

    No problem! Just post here. I'm sure one or all of us have been through it before. Guaranteed.

    Everyone is really great about helping out. Even what seems like stupid questions.

    Try the search function as well for immediate answers.

    And just a note, that if it's a question that's been asked before, sometimes you'll get a snarky answer. Everyone means it in fun, but as a newbie, it can be kind of intimating.

    They are like babies in general. Eat, sleep, poop, play, eat, sleep, poop, play [​IMG]

    Have fun with your chicks!
