    Is this normal for a 6 [​IMG] day old chick? She is now starting to fly in and out of the brooder. My 2 week old chicks look at her like.. "How did you do that???" Lol! I'm new to the chicken world so I'm not sure what to do... Should I put some sort of cover over their brooder?

    Totally normal. Yes, cover the top with screen/hardware cloth to contain them.
