I am chicken and guinea fowl lover and I hatch and raise them. I am still trying to understand them. The chicks when they are hatched tends to die when they start to grow feathers what is the reason for them dying at that stage

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. I'd suggest posting on the "raising baby chicks" forum for advice from the experts.

 

More generally, you'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre 

http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads. 

 

You may wish to consider joining your state thread  as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

 

All the best

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! I'm sorry to hear that you lost some. There could be a few things that are the issue. What do you feed them? Are they too cold or too warm? Is fresh water always available? What symptoms do they have before they die? Are the parent birds heathly and in good condition?

Please do pop by the links CT left for you and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Do they exhibit any symptoms before they die? Do you hatch your own? Incubators can harbor bacteria that will affect the next batch of chicks.

Welcome to BYC :frow I'm sorry to hear about the losses. As the above posters said, there are a number of possible causes. If you can give us some more info, we may be able to help you figure it out. For the guinea keets, I'd suggest you start a thread in the Guinea section here:
