Chicks are clumsy. It is only 7 days old after all. Chicks are also itchy. They are trying to grow in all kinds of new feathers, so they are naturally just... itchy and scratchy. If you have done a bug check and not found any evidence of problems in that realm, I would just consider the behavior to be normal.
