    I have some chicks who are about 2-1/2 weeks old. I brought them outside for a little fresh air and I noticed that one chick does not like it at all!

    While the other chicks peck and scratch and walk around, this one stays in one place (will NOT move at all - for 20 minutes), pants, and poops a lot! I feel like I'm torturing this poor girl.

    When they get back inside, under thier "french fry" lamp, she perks right up.

    Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
