    My 8 week old silkies keep shaking their heads. Is this normal or is something up with them? Otherwise they seem like normal chicks. Could they have lice in their ears or something?

    too little info to help you... what are you feeding? What is the environment they are currently (and past) in (inside/outside?)? What bedding have you used and are using now?

    They are on pine shavings. They eat chick starter. I have been letting them outside in the grass these last couple of days. I noticed they get stuff stuck in their head a lot more than other chickens. (like pieces of twigs) I fed them some tomatoe bits the other day and some peach pieces. And they eat a little grass. Thanks.

    Their poops are normal well formed. And I have been feeding them a little yogurt too.
