    Well, you need to tell us how old she is, and how cold is it outside. If its a matter of a young chick, you can't do much better than putting her under the light. If you have electolytes or vitamins to put it her water it won't hurt, but give her warmish water, not cold.

    pretty cold...do as suggested by jenjscot..vitamins, electrolytes in warmish water..
    and keep warm..
    give the water by drops on beak...not down the throat.

    watch for "cold" symptoms.

    hope she's ok.

    At 5 months, 40 degrees shouldn't bother her. How is she this morning? She may have something else going on, are there any other symptoms?
