    Have a flock of 51 peeps, freedom ranger blacks. Hatch date last Thursday so they are just over 1 week old. We took them from a plastic shed brooder house to a horse trailer tack room last night. 2 heat lamps, 1 7 gal and 1 10 gal food bucket. 2 3.5 gal water buckets. Laid down linoleum tile. Covered it in fresh pine shavings. All seemed well before bed last night. Happy, warm, etc. all vaccinated for Mareks. One corner got water wet but plenty of room to avoid it. This afternoon found one that looks a little worse for wear. "Belly" almost looks wet/fuzz missing. Not listless, still frisky. Everyone else looks great. Thoughts?
