Do chicks have a 'fear' stage?

I know little puppy dogs, at a certain age, become quite fearful, and then grow out of it.

Do little chicks do likewise?

I have three chicks here in a box at my feet and they have been here since they were born. I pick them up frequently.

All of a sudden they are startling at everything, even if I cough or something.

So I was wondering.

This is normal and are just now in the beginning stages of forming their protectionist flock and pecking order. Like one of the young roos saying Hey!!! everybody run away now. Once the pecking order is established this behavior calms quite a bit.
