    My recently adopted chicks often seem like they have heavy heads... they will be eating, drinking and running around then stand still, close their eyes and slowly drop their heads and lay down and go to sleep. Is this normal?

    Yeah it's normal. When chicks get sleepy they just plop down and sleep where ever they are
