I did the same thing. I think I worried myself to death and they were all happy and oblivious.
It is so cute to watch them dust bathe and to learn to perch, they grow so fast, enjoy them. Sounds like you are doing good!
Post pics of the babies when you can, would love to see them!

My chicks are 24 days old. They are burrowing and kicking pine shavings all over the place! It's flying everywhere. First there was only one doing it and now all 3 are doing it, as we speak. I thought something was wrong and searched and came across this thread! 3 weeks seems too young to dust bathe?? They are having a ball though!
