    My chicks hatched a few hours ago, I let them dry and put them in there box...... about 90' one side being a little cooler than the other, It's really not that hot and they are panting... Why ???? And what should I do ????

    Have they drank water yet?

    Maybe your thermometers are off. The temperature should be measured at the level of their backs.

    Maybe you can raise your heat source a little and see if that helps.

    What does their peeping sound like. Is it the loud distressed peep?
