    Funny I have lots of new questions I could'nt think of before these chicks arrived!

    do they need a little bos or something to sleep in? they look so tiny in this big tub! I would think they would want a smaller box so they could snuggle up in a corner to sleep....or do they just sleep where ever?

    They like to cuddle for sure. They will be fine in the tub though. They will create a soft chicken mat and sleep away the day. Boy it would be nice to be a chicken sometimes.
