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

    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!

    Quote:I know, one of my Brahmas sleeps on the perch with her head slung over it hanging down which is scary but I know she is okay.

    Sometimes mine sleep on their sides with one leg stretched out behind them. Kind of like they are just lounging. It's funny!

    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!
