    Sorry - think this might be a stupid question, but if chicks (nearly 4 weeks) twitch their heads, is it a sign of stress or are they just being chickens.....

    Twitch like abnormally, or twitch as in bob it around to see? I don't suppose you have a Youtube video to use as an example?

    When sitting or falling asleep it seems. Not all the time. Like flicking their heads.... Every 4 or 5 seconds when ther are doing it.
