    I've only raised 12 chicks, so I don't know how strange she is, but several times we thought she was DEAD.

    She stretches her neck out and lays it on any surface in front of her like a pillow and then goes to sleep. It's very eerie.
    She's 4 weeks today and is still doing it. Ever seen this?
  2. A few of our chicks have like to have their head a little higher when they go to sleep. At that age, they have a very hard time holding their head upright while taking a nap.
