It has been a weird March for Ohio. The last two weeks it has been in the 70s-high 80s for the last two weeks. And just these last couple days it has cooled back down. Yesterday it was in the high 60s and today I think it's in the high 40s. In my house it is about 75 degrees and the heat lamp is lowered in the brooder. But I noticed today that my chicks are sleeping a bit more than usual.
Usually they are walking around/eating/playing with tiny naps in between. But today they are all eating/drinking then all going to sleeping in one corner. Much like they do at night.
I have had them for 5 days now and so their first four it was pretty warm in the house (about 85 degrees). So are they just reacting to the climate drop?
Like I said I lowered their lamp just to be safe. And I gave them some electrolyte water.
They seem fine other than that. They are still bright eyed and there is no discharge or anything else worrying.
Sorry if this seems like a silly post. I am new to raisng chicks and just want to make sure they are alright.
