Lost two today to "flip" - kind of makes a guy think he is doing something wrong. I have them on a 12 hours on 12 hours off feeding schedule. In the morning this is what I get to look forward to. A bunch of hungry chickens lined up at the fence waiting for their food.
But this morning I noticed two were laying down and didn't get up to meet me. So I looked and the one it's plumb dead stiff as a board on its back. The other one was breathing real heavy. I picked it up and dipped it beak in the water but it wouldn't have anything to do with it, so I cleared a opening at the feeder and placed it down but it wouldn't have anything to do with eating. So I put it back in the shade about 1 hour later it too was dead on its back. I hope this stops I'm now down to 11 from 13.
It rained lke the Dickens yesterday and is very humid I'm not sure how if that stressed them out or what but the other 11 are very active. I personally think their little hearts gave out but who knows?Edited by crealbilly - 5/11/16 at 12:20pm
