Hi, My Java chicks were born last Friday and last Sunday (so they're not quite a week old). As an experiment I turned out their light a while ago and they went to sleep. When I leave the light on they seem to wake and sleep on a very short cycle. What's best for them? Also, they seem to be going crazy with boredom in their box. So I built them a quick outside enclosure and took them out today for a couple hours. They caught ants. I can't see how I can keep them inside for six weeks, their legs are so long and powerful already! They're trying to fly! Thoughts?
