    They seem to have energy but some will just lay down and sleep it looks. When I pick them up or they get nudged by other chicks they seem to pop up just fine. I just wanna make sure they are ok so I don't keep bothering them if they are trying to sleep.

    They are sleeping, as long as you see them all eat and drink I don't think you have anything to worry about, chicks do a lot of napping [​IMG]
