    Two of my hens are just hunkered down, fluffed up and shivering in separate corners of my coop. It's like 40 degrees out and sunny and warm, so they shouldn't be cold...any ideas on what they may have? No other symptoms...eyes aren't watery, no sneezing...I don't want it spread to everyone :( Thanks!!

    It could just be a wing chill that took their body heat, but you'll want to check with more people.

    Thanks, one didn't make it overnight and the other isn't going to last so I guess I'll put her out of her suffering :( just hope it's not too contagious.
