    My name is Kati. I'm new here. I have a chicken who acts very tired. It just started
    yesterday. It runs around, then stops and naps. It has never acted like this before.
    It has no other symptoms. It's about 5 weeks old. I put it outside in a coop and run
    about two weeks ago because it was warm. I have a heat lamp on it at night. The
    others appear normal-running around, foraging, etc.. The chicken eats and drinks well.
    It also has normal looking droppings. Any ideas? It is indoors now.

    Thank you
