It's normal for chicks to do this right?

    I have had baby chicks for the past 3 years and love them! But somehow every time one or end up passing. So this time I'm determined to my very very best. Some of chicks will be moving and eating and chirping and all of a sudden sit down and fall asleep. Even if the rest are all moving around. This is a normal behavior isn't it? I know they're growing and everything so I assume that they're just resting. But I'm making sure!!
    Thanks for any help!

    I'm new to baby chicks (first year). We have 2 so far (getting the rest next two weeks). And our two babies will be running around being crazy and then the next thing passed out.
