    I noticed tonight as I put the chickens in to coop that the chicken that got left out last night is breathing heavy, but she is setting under the heat lamp do i need to worry?

    How old is the chicken?

    Probably nothing more than stress and maybe a little chilled depending on where you are and the weather.

    Yes I moved the thread, as the other poster surmised, to where it would get more attention.
