    One of my chicks sleeps all day even when I pick her up she will sleep in my hands. Is this normal?

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Whilst I'm no expert, I'd suggest that its not normal for a chick to be lethargic all the time. Maybe you could give them vitamin supplements / electrolytes in their water and see how she goes on.

    All the best

    How old is she? Is she eating and drinking and pooing? If so maybe hatching was extra hard on her.

    Sleeping all the time is not normal. CTKen has given you a good idea and Drumstick diva has asked some good questions. Hope they help.

    Good luck!
