    We have 5 chicks, all different breeds. They are 2 weeks old. They're all eating, pooping, sleeping, etc. as they should, but the RI Red's head started drooping today. I can't tell if she's picking at the fuzz on her breast, or if she's really dragging her head on the ground.

    We're using medicated chick starter, the temp is good, and they haven't been outside.

    Can anyone advise as to whether or not this is normal?

    Thanks,
    Gracie
