I have 10 13 week old chicks, and one a bit older rooster. Is it normal for them to sleep a lot during the day? What is normal if there is such a thing? Thanks for the questions to help me be more specific with this post. They don't free range, yet. When they are awake, they are very active, eating and drinking really well. I just see them in the large house area A LOT, but I'm not out there for hours. I'm guessing since they are active and eating well, especially fresh veggies or fruit n' protein snacks / treats, that they are fine. New mommy syndrome?
