Chicks not growing right. Skinny and dying

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Anyone ever dealt with young chicks who don't develop like the rest? Feathers growing bigger and faster than they are and not gaining weight and very bones and skinny? In chicks like 1-4 weeks old. No signs of cocci or other issues. Have full access to all the fresh food and water that they want. Perfectly warm brooder and clean environment

Where did you obtain them from? What breed? What are you feeding them, exactly?
