I have four three week old chicks and one two week old chick- everybody seems healthy and happy, but they are doing a lot of scratching! I assumed it was because their feathers are coming in but am I missing something else- how common are lice? Some of the chicks have little red spots where they have irritated (not torn or anything) the skin by scratching.

Good question and I'll be watching this. My chicks occasionally scratch like dogs do! mine haven't irritated themselves, though... from what I see. I looked for bugs but didn't notice any...

I haven't seen anything jump off the little birds, but we did put in a box of sand earlier tonite and it's been a beach party ever since. Maybe they are just itchy with new feathers coming in? Hmmmm
