We picked up what are approximately 2-3 week old chicks yesterday and one of the Americana's has become lethargic. We are wondering if this is a problem as it seems to be in direct contrast to all the other chicks behavior. Could she be dying?

Could be stressed from the move, or could be it isn't feeling well. Time will tell. Are you brooding them at the same temperature that the last place was? Are you feeding the same feed or a different brand?

same feed. and keeping temp around 100. But I don't know what temp they had them at. She does seem a little better this morning.

100 is pretty high I would lower the temperature closer to 80 degrees or even 75 depending on how well they are feathering.
