    I have 3 new chicks. If it is real hot out do they still need a lamp on? 90 out today!
    Also I brought them home. They put them in a little paper bag.
    The older one is just laying there. Looks real hot. Gave her some water and she did
    eat but isnt moving much.

    they need 95* first week of life and every week after you drop it 5 degrees. but they might have gotten over heated inside the paper bag. How are they doing now? a little sugar water would probably help.
