This is probably a stupid question...it got pretty hot today in Davis, California, and I noticed some of my chicks were sitting with their mouths open for short lengths of time...kinda looked like chick panting? They were still piled on top of each other like they like to hang out. Is this a sign that they are getting too hot and I should move the heat lamp farther away? It is hard to regulate temperature cause our temps have been swinging from ~50-95 degrees each day, so I try to just leave a good gradient of heat across the brooder... Thanks!
