I am new to the chicken world...I am in love but worried to death..didnt worry this much when my 2 sons were born...What are the signs of a stressed chicken. I am reading all the stuff on these posts and it's making me nuts. I have 2 - 5 week old chicks..they are eating, playing, and growing. It has been hot here in NY and 1 of them is open her mouth a lot and panting...it's making me worry even more...Is she just a lil hot or is it something worse..or am I just nuts and the heat is getting to me too? HELPPP..I wanna sleep tonight without worrying about my chickies.
