    My chicks are 2 weeks old today, and for the last week they have been taking "flying lessons". They're starting to get pretty good sized now, and when they "fly" they crash pretty hard into each other and the sides of the brooder. Should I be concerned?? I have to admit, it's pretty entertaining! [​IMG]

    They are normal chickies! Mine fly, do Ninja jumps, bump into the others with their chests...all a part of growing up to be a big chicken.

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    hehehe.... Try keeping 3 week old Sebrights in a brooder. They are very rambunctious and nary a day goes by that I don't have an escapee on my hands.
