    Hi,

    My chicks arrived today. The 2 silkies have been sleeping way more than the other chicks. Should I be worried or do anything special for them or is that just silkies?

    Thanks!

    I really can't answer your question but all chicks sleep alot and if they are warm, eating and drinking I think they are ok.

    Someone will probably be able to help out with your question about Silkies Good luck with your babies! [​IMG]

    New chicks sleep. If they are not eating, drinking - that is a concern. Sleeping? Pretty normal.
