I got a st run of Barred Plymouth Rock chicks. We have them in a brooder and they are warm. They are all walking around eating and drinking. I have already changed the water once because they poo in it. I noticed some chicks laying down and thought they were dead. Are they just sleeping? Will it harm them if I take them out to play with me? They are soooo cute. I sprinkled their food on the burlap, is that ok. BTW, I'm afraid to touch a dead one. I'm a RN so it shouldn't bother me so much but one was dead in the box from the post office and I was scared to get it out, made my husband do it.
