It must be a milestone in a chick’s life when Mom and Dad stop sitting on him.  Some of the parents continue to try to cover them even when the chicks have clearly outgrown the space that is available underneath the adult.  I have watched chicks try to buck them off, but most eventually give up and just resign themselves to being flattened.
