    So, I was taking pics of my newest chick and his twin that hatched out 2 days before... I put them back in their brooder, and decided it was time to upgrade them to a bigger food dish.

    I put the new bowl in the pen, and of course they all thought it was surely going to eat them, as they all huddled in the far corner [​IMG] Well, the newest chick was standing there, PEEPPEEPEPPPEEEEEEP! then he just fell over on his back with both feet in the air [​IMG] [​IMG] I couldn't believe my eyes, and of course grabbed the camera and got as good pictures as I could [​IMG]

    Here are the "twins" together

    Here is the youngest right after he fainted

    And here he is once he stood back up, he's the one on the left (just so you know he really was just fine [​IMG])

    Maybe you had garlic for lunch and got too close to him.

    They can get narcolepsy, but it is more likely he overloaded with CO2 (hyperventilated) with all that peeping![​IMG]

    Reminds me of my fainting goats... This is something they'd do [​IMG] Maybe it was the sight of all that food in one spot. He thought he died and went to chickie heaven [​IMG]
