One of my 3 weeks old chicks at night time (for the past 3 days) lays on her belly, rolls to one side and rapidly scratches the pine bedding down to the bottom w/ one foot. Then she rolls to the other side and does the same thing on that side. She continues to do this throughout the night. It scared me the first night, I thought something was wrong w/ her. She is so preoccupied that she allows herself to be stepped on. Is this normal behavior?
