    We have a blue AM chick that was in the coop today. It's about 8 weeks old. It's been rather cool today and damp, but not like freezing, and when I go to feed it's in the run balled up. I thought it was dead at first, but it's making noises. So we brought her in the house to warm up a little bit. It's not really that much warmer in here then outside, but it is slightly. It's been 10 or 15 mins and the chick is cheeping and sometimes moves its legs, but it's eyes are closed and it isn't that responsive. Any advice?
