Hey guys,
I just got my baby RIRs yesterday and today I noticed they're sleeping very often. Is this normal? I'm new at this so please forgive me if this is a stupid question. Another question I have is should I be keeping their white light (it's the light in the room) on 24/7 along with the red heat lamp or not? Thanks in advance!

sleeping often is very common in young chicks. the question is not stupid, it is only natural to be worried when you are a parent!!! the heat lamp should be enough heat, so you dont need the light.
