I have been perusing these boards for months and have learned so much! We finally took the plunge, but... Yesterday I purchased 4 black sexlinks that were just delivered as day-old chicks to the feed store at noon. They were peeping and quite active all afternoon and evening, eating/drinking/pooping a bunch, then settled down and slept. This morning they don't seem very active at all. Mostly just laying around. I've seen them eat a bit, but I'm just surprised they're not peeping and eating/drinking much now. I have a light and they do seem to be snuggling under it. The feeder/waterer took up more space than I thought, so I'm going to get a bigger box to be my brooder today. So, my questions are: Should they be more active? If so, what can I look for as signs of any problems that are causing them to be so calm/quiet? My husband says I'm overreacting - just being a mother hen LOL Thanks in advance for any help!
