Is this just sun bathing?

    We just got a new heat lamp for our chicks and they all started to lean like they were warming their belly. Is this normal? All are healthy and eating/drinking just fine. It's really funny to watch but looks weird.

    Yes! Normal. I remember the first time one of my first chicks started taking a dust bath, I thought she was having a seizure! LOL

    Totally normal. My adult girls love to lay on their sides and soak up the sun light!
