I just brought home 6 baby show quality Silkie chicks, 1 buff, 3 blue and 2 lavender split black. Well, the buff (Snuggles) loves the cuddle. Today I brought her outside for a little while. She was climbing all over me, then the bottom of my shirt raised a little and she darted in it!! She had her whole body in my shirt except for her little booty. Is that normal??
I will upload pics as soon as a can

I am NO expert at ALL! But... my guess is... maybe it was cold? I have only had chickens since April - and they were my first ones... So, best to wait for other replies. Take mine last.

they can't be seperated too early! They don't even have to see their mommy ever, even though I think it's sort of mean(the probably don't). Chickens are the kind of birds that can take care of themselves from the start. I forgot the word for that

Some like to sleep in your shirt too, you can tuck it in and walk around with your chick in there (in your shirt) Just remember to shake out the little presents you might find. It's not that she has to have a mommy to be a good chicken, but the hen will teach them alot, how to scratch to find food, hunt for bugs, fly into trees to evade, dust bathe, etc...but you can teach them, or encourage them to do it if you want..my feed store chicks learned from watching other chickens, really they didn't know anything - I taught them to fly up to a tree limb, and one evening I was glad I had (saved a chicken life)
