    if you have a spray bottle right when you open it (cant open it alot) spray around so the others dont get shrinkwrapped and quick grab the chick.....do you have a broodder? besides the heat lamp? you can use a heating pad and a warm water bottle in the brooder. the heating pad i would put under the brooder. if uyou have any other questions feel free to PM me
