    one of my chick for 2 days now feels very warm when we pick her up, the other is warm but not as much they are about 1 1/2 weeks old both eating and drinking, running around, and pooing ok Just wondering if it was ok for her to feel hot.

    I forgot there is maybe a 2 day age gap if that makes a difference.
    Thanks

    is the hotter one avoiding the heat lamp when the other one is closer to it? This can really tell you if one is hotter then the other.

    I have the lamp off during the day as it is warm here, then at night it is on and they both just walk around together, not like they are trying to stay under the light or get away from it either, just walking and playing, She is hte loud mouth active one but is first to lay down. they do sleep next to each other but have since we got them on Weds, th is is new body heat yesterday and today.
