    My hubby went to the brooder and the heat lamp had gotten unplugged somehow, all 7 7-week chickens are all feathered, all were fine but one whom was just sitting by the door. She is chirping a big, but not moving around. We brought her inside and put her in our inside brooder with heat lamp. Gave her some food and water but doesnt seem interested in eating/drinking. Still chirping occasionally has eyes shut and on the rare occasion opens them

    What is wrong and what do i do??

    Thanks for the reply, that was exactly it! We warmed her under the heat lamp and then she was back to norm.
