I just had two chicks 12 days old die. They didn't show any symptoms. I just played with them both a couple hours ago and both were fine. Then suddenly one died about two hours ago, and another one died just an hour ago. We held the second one, she was sleepy and chipping but so weak, she couldn't stand, we put her down and not even a minute later rolled over and died.
I'm worried about my other chicks that were in the same cage with them. I've moved them to a new tote with new bedding, water, and food; I also don't see any of the others to be sleepy. They're all eating and drinking and moving around fine.
Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea what it could be?
