    I have three pullets I've raised from chicks, and am wondering if they are sleeping too much. They are 2 1/2 months old. They seem to take a few (3? 4?) naps each day. Is this normal?

    *shrugs* Seems normal to me. Our birds sometimes still face-plant and sleep when they're done eating and drinking and running around, even as adults. Unless they are sleeping constantly and don't seem interested in food or some other behavior, I wouldn't worry.
