This is my favorite photo of Coco. She's about 6 days old in this photo. I brought the chicks home, which was so traumatic for them. The guy from the feed & fuel, pulls them out of their nice warm brooder from all their friends and puts them in a box. The box is filled with pine shaving and lots of air holes. But none-the-less, they just scream with fear. After a bit they tire out and all huddle together for a good sleep.
And this is how they sleep. Beak down. Butt up.
They'll be running around one minute. Eating. Drinking. Cheeping. And then their eyes get heavy and their beaks seem to get heavy too. And they just topple over and fall asleep. A sudden noise will wake them up and the cycle repeats.
