I'm new to being a chick mom, even though I have taken care of them before. I have 15 dark brahmas, all should be pullets but I think 2 are roosters . They were hatched on March 27, so they're just a few weeks old. I noticed the other day that one of the pullets looks like she is had a short neck & slept a lot. After watching her more, she stretches her neck out to eat & drink, but she roosts a lot more than the others, with her head tucked in & eyes closed, & is even very quiet & still when I pick her up. Anyone have any opinions or ideas?
