    Cute....yes that’s normal. The first time your chicks are in sunshine don’t be shocked when they lay down on one side stick their legs out straight and spread their wings...it’s funny! It’s like “chillin” for chickens.
    That little one loves the duster. Have you thought about putting in a very shallow cardboard box and a shovel of good dirt?
    First dust baths make precocious videos!
    Have Fun

    I’d say it’s pretty normal. When chicks nap, they nap HARD.

    When we got our first chicks, we would find them sprawled out like that. We thought they dropped dead! But nope, just hardcore napping :lau

    Phew. I’m a very paranoid chick momma, worried about every little thing. This is my first time hatching chicks, I just hatched my first 6 ducklings as well.

    :thIt’s hard being a mom.

    I think it has to do with the feathers ..if the handle was straight up I dont think it would do that ..LOL
