Hi,
I let my girls out this afternoon and they roamed and had fun, but after about 20 minutes one or two of them laid down on the driveway with one wing spread out and a leg, I couldn't quite understand what they were doing. Taking a fake dust bath? Too warm? Too cold? Just curious ( they are 6-1/2 weeks old)

Fake dustbath/sunbathing - perfectly normal chicken behavior. They are unaware of the problems associated with sunbathing.
