    Hi everyone, i have just become a new member of BYC and would like to ask for some advice. i have just become mum to 10 2 week old chicks and i have noticed that when some of them sleep they tend to shake their heads, but when they are awake it doesnt happen.They are all very active and are eating very well and look very healthy. Could you please let me know if this is normal?[​IMG]
