    I always have a bunch of chicks that fall asleep while standing up on their first couple days after hatching. I just want to say that it is so funny when they fall forward and seem to be confused about what just happened. Doesn't hurt them at all but very funny to watch.

    This is our first go at raising chickens and I have to agree. It is hilarious. Ours run run run then suddenly wind down like an old toy and sputter to a stop... fall asleep... sink to the ground and wake up.

    I think the 3-point stance for sleeping is also funny... butt in the air and beak in the pine shavings.
