I have the four chicks in a large tub, with paper towels down that I change daily, chick starter feed, clean water. I have a heat lamp for them, but not a thermometer. I also started giving them greens yesterday, organic spring mix salad that I bought for myself.
Everything has been fine with these chicks, though one of the chicks I initially brought home died within hours of getting it. I figured it was just a fluke since it was only a day old, but now I am all concerned about the chicks. I have only ever raised chicks once before and there was no sickness or fatalities whatsoever, so I am worried!
I have taken the salad out of the brooder. What else should I do beside pray for my most favorite chick?
Also, she is the runt, and earlier she seemed to have lost her appetite a bit.
Thanks for all advice.
