Is it a bad thing when the chicks extend their leg and wing outwards going down, what exactly is happening (are they just stretching)?

They are just stretching my dear!! They are discovering all of their little parts, like a baby finding their toes for the first time. Cuteness!!

Oh gosh, yes, stretching.

And also you should know.. when they sleep, they look dead sometimes.


isn't that cute

lol... I love when they stretch out their wings.. it's like they are showing off!!!! I especially like when it's contagious and everyone in the brooder feels like they must do that too.! Like a yawn!

They LOVE to do this when you change their bedding. They will lay on their side and dust bathe in the bedding it is SO cute. If you pile up the bedding into little piles, they love it even more!
