I just about had a heart attack thanks to my daughters chick that I thought was dying. Its about 4 weeks old and I heard a strange noise from its pen (inside until it warms up) and I noticed her laying on her side almost under the food dish, her feet were kinda twitching almost like she was scratching while on her side. I called my oldest son to help me figure out what was wrong with her. We caught her and tried to put her in a separate pen to look her over. She was pretty upset with us for taking her from her friends. I hear the noise again and look over to see another one doing it. Then I realized she was taking a dust bath in the shavings. I felt pretty dumb but would much rather laugh at myself than have to explain to my 5 year old why her bird had died.
