I just moved my chicks that were born November 21st outside to a coop with a heat lamp - They seem to be doing great but I did notice that when we bring one in our house ( our chickens love to cuddle or should I say I love to cuddle them ) that after about 20 minutes or so they will start to pant with there mouths open like a dog. They do not do this constantly only when brought inside for a while. So should I not be bringing them inside ? Is the change in temperature bad for them? I love to spend time with them but do not want to cause harm. This is our first time raising chickens . We incubated them and have hand raised them. I never thought I would have chickens but this has been an awesome experience for my family and I don't want to endanger the birds. I've not been able to find any information about this and hope you can help.
