I have a Barred Rock chick almost 2 weeks old now. She seems to be doing great - eating, drinking, getting socialized with my 2 kids and fine being handled, etc. When we put the chicks on a blanket to play with them this one chick sometimes will sit down, then proceed to rub her chest on the blanket like she is taking a bath. She also rolls onto her side a bit and rubs too (a bit like a dog does in grass or on a carpet when it wants to scratch). Is this normal? Our other 2 don't do this, so just curious if something is wrong with her, or just chalk it up to goofy chicken behavior... Thanks!
