    It is currently in the 90's most days here in N.C. And I was wondering if I should give my 3 week olds cold water when we go out to play? I read on here that chicks should have warm to room temp water. Didn't know if that was accurate or for how long. I've been watching them closely when we go out and they are not panting at all but I know I need ice water when we come in:D didn't know if it would benefit them.

    If they are not panting then they must be fine, so it doesn't seem like there's any need to change what you are doing.
