    One of my chicks just started doing a poop dance. She like waves her feathers before pooping. And shes pooping ALOT.
    I only counted 4 times in just a few minutes, but it was alot more then the other girls.

    Should I be concerned?

    Did she just wake up? I've noticed mine will wake, stretch and shake and then poop. Sometimes, it'll be a couple of poops.

    Yep, I woke them up from a nap by trying to re-fill their water. XD
