    My girls at 1.5 weeks, our brooder is inside and we have a 125w heat lamp on them. Several are starting to flutter back and forth around the brooder, too early or is this normal?

    Perfectly normal chick behaviour [​IMG] Make sure your brooder is covered, or you'd be amazed at what a young age they can start flying and how fast they can run once they've escaped!
