    "Crazy eye" pictured below, sleeps like this all the time. Crazy huh. I thought that she/he was dead the first time I seen her/him like this.[​IMG]

    So what's wrong? [​IMG]

    Do you mean that bare patch of eyelid? That is what folds in on itself and you don't see it when the eye is open. Like your upper eyelid.

    Baby and young chickens sleep in all sorts of positions when they are little. It's normal.

    Yup... looks dead to me! [​IMG]

    I think crazy-eye looks a bit odd too! She/he must have had a really tiring day!

    Mine sleep with their neck stuck out like that, too. It looks like they are ready for the chopping block! [​IMG]

    The splat! I love the splat, especially when you have about twelve of them all doing it at the same time.

    *giggle* I wish I had known this a week ago. I recieved a bunch of dead and deathly ill chicks in the mail.... and was worried anytime the poor things weren't standing up that they were about to die, so I'd hurriedly "revive" them with a guide to the waterer.

    *lol* A week later, I see that my survivors like to sprawl out strangely, too! Imagine that!
