our 4 chicks are 8, 9(2) and 10 weeks old. we're going with the baby's age getting them use to being out doors in their coop. bringing them in at night for about 4 or 5 days now. tonight one of the 9 week olds escaped the brooding box and was sitting on the floor in the basement next to the box. we got her back in and her behavior was very odd, she kept jumping to get out and walking over the other chicks as they tried to nest down for the night. finally we took all of them back out to the coop and put them in the roosting part with a night light. agnes, the one that is acting weird was trying to escape that box too, we put her in the outside part - the run (it's still enclosed and secure and she can join the others if she walks up the ramp) she tried to walk up the wall on the inside of the coop/run and finally roosted on the top of the 5 gallon water dispenser. the other 3 chicks are all trying to occupy the same corner of the coop and keep wrestling for the position. They're all acting a bit odd, but Agnes is more so. Agnes is a rhode island red - her tail feathers don't look the same as the other 3 chicks, so there is the possibility that she's a he. would that explain the weird behavior?
