    My polish crested chick had clear poop this evening when I went to give to warm water for the cold night. She's acting fine, and nothing else seems to be wrong. Could this be related in any way to the cold front that just came in? It's colder than most winters this year, and she's never experienced cold weather before. I have her under the heat lamp. What could be the matter? Thank you!

    how old is it and what conditions has it been living in? if it is fully feathered and been staying out it more then likly is able to handle cold better then heat but you cant just switch them back and forth. check temp. in there and maybe ventilate or use lower watt

    Can she get away from the heat of the lamp?
