3 Day Old Chicks Dying -- WHAT IS THIS?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All!

So...after ordering hatching eggs and having a successful hatch, my chicks are dying. They have weak legs, stop eating and drinking, and are "gasping." This is what I found in one of my "healthy" chicks droppings....

Is this something that was eaten OR could this be culprit behind my dying chicks? Has anyone ever experienced this before?

Send me a picture of the bird. Multiple if possible.

I have the exact same thing with one of our chicks. She won't drink unless I am using a syringe but she is picking at her food. She won't put any weight on her legs and just wants to sleep lying on her side. Sometimes her eyes are open.
