My week old chicks look already bigger, the Plymouth White ones already have fully white feathered wings! But lately they are so hyper! The temperatures is just right at 90 degrees, but now many have started to fly around the brooder wreaking havoc. Sometimes I worry someone may get hurt as when one flies they all move around to avoid a collapse. Is this normal part of growing up? I often see some fly like if they get a kick out of making all the rest stampede. In the night they make so much noise flapping around we hardly can go back to sleep.. I have 16 in a 105 gallon storage bin.. do they need more room than that? I have another bin ready just in case I need to divide them as they grow bigger...
