    Hi, I currently have 6 chicks which are almost 8 weeks old.We are new to keeping chickens but are loving every moment of it.We have mixed breed of 2 x Silkies, 2 x Barnevelders, 1 x Goldtop and 1 x Blacktail. I've noticed that ober the last few days one of Barnevelders is laying down alot, alot more than all of the other chicks, she is walking approx 10 steps then laying down, do I need to worry? Or can this be normal chick behaviour? Maybe I have a lazy chick but I'm worried incase I'm missing anything, she is eating and drinking fine, does anyone know what this can be? Many thanks
