Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome (I wish it was under better circumstances),

 

Get over to the emergencies forum as quick as you can and make a post with a detailed description of what is happening to your chicks. Try to give as much information as possible, that will help the members there figure out what is going on. Here's a link to take you there:

I'm sorry you've lost some of your chicks and hope the rest of them will be ok.

 

Good luck!

Any chance their feed got moldy?  Any neighbors spraying  weeding productions?     Could you temporarily move them to a different  location, to see if that alleviates  the problem.?

 

Is it possible to take a dead chick to the vet for a necropsy to determine what is killing them?
