So my sweet, calm chicks are 6 days old now and overnight have turn into HYPER CRAZY race around there brooder and trying to fly chicks!!!! Is it normal for 6 day old chicks to be this hyper???? lol this is my first time having chicks! I heard I could give them a clump of dirt and grass to put in there brooder so they can eat it/play with it. What age is a good age to start doing this? What age did you give them some weeds, grass and dirt? I don't mean let them outside, I just mean a small shovelful to put in there brooder. This is what they look like all day: !!!!!!!!!!! They used to be .....calm!
