    I have some week old chicks and whenever I go check on them they run around the cage frantically and try to fly and hit the walls of the cage.
    Is this normal? They weren't like this yesterday.

    Yup, normal ... they're in their "chicken little" stage. As they mature they will calm down some. Just keep handling them and interacting with them in positive ways and eventually they will again see you as the bringer of all things good.
