I have been hatching eggs all spring i have some 2 and 3 month olds doing great. My last batch is some mil fluers and silkies they had been in the house for a month i moved them outside 3 days ago into some of my breeder pens. Well the weather turned bad when i was gone and it poured rain they have a roof but the door is made of hardware cloth to allow air in I guess they got chilled and one died and a few others sound like they have fluid in there chest i was only gone like 4 hrs. I have never had this happened i dont know what to do with them there is like 25 that have been living together for a month i pulled out the ones that sounded sick and put them in the house. Is this from the cold weather and rain or do i need to worry about something more severe? PLEASE any help would be great like what do i do to help them?
