You know how chicks lay down to sleep with their neck stretched out and they look so content and cute! Do grown chickens still sleep like that? I guess I've just never watched chickens sleep...

No, a few of my grown hens put their head underneath one of their wings.... I imagine they like the dark there.


I was out watching my month old chicks about an hour ago and it kills me how they just lay down and stretch out their necks... but I do have one Ameraucana chick that has started putting it's head under it's wing

All of mine sleep with their heads under their wings. Didn't know that it would be done any other way!

I love how they fall all over the brooder box like drunkin sailors. I love it! They just seem to be like "think I'll take a nap" and it can be anywhere. I started letting my week old babies roost on a stick in the bottom of the box and drape over it. I can sit and watch them for hours
