    Should I be concerned? Two of my 4 chicks don't seem to active the last few days. I don't see them drinking or eating a lot. They just seem to want to sit and rest. They were active before. Any idea why they would do this? Thanks for any help or ideas.

    I should mention that due to the very humid hot weather, i did bring them in for a few days when the temp was above 100---could that cause them to act this way?

    Likely, they are just chillin'. Give them another day or two and see what happens.

    My birds aren't eating as much either. I think it is because of the heat.
