    I have 11 pullets bought from tsc, over the weekend we build them a new home, and I laid in 5 inch bed of shavings, inside temp is 76, now I see they will pick at their crumble or even drink water then, walk under the light and plop on there side and spread their wing down along side of their body. They will stay like this until another one comes running by and then they get up and walk around. It reminds me of the fainting goats..I am so new to this and learning day by day so Im looking once again for a solution to this problem, if its a problem. The girls are 5 weeks old, have all their feathers, clean feet, clean eyes, beaks straight, I want to put a web cam in their coop, my husband says Im going to far...Can someone help?

    Thanks for reading my post..

    Can you post photos of what you are seeing?
    I'm not quite sure of your question.
    Are you asking about the plopping down under the light with their wings spread out? Are they sunning themselves under the lamp?
    Are they eating and drinking, running around, then plopping down or are the lethargic?
