I really was looking forward to posting that the babies had arrived but i seem to be having some issues so a question post is what i need to do....
So I just got 27 Chicks (hatched on the 24th) on the 25th in the mail from a hatchery nearby and they all survived the trip home, they seemed delighted to get in to their new home, running about eating and drinking fine, but now just 2 days later i have already lost 8 of them, i feel they are being trampled on however as advised they are in a coop with no corners when they sleep they are bunched together but the coop is warm with heat lamp over them and when they are awake they are very active and spread out. We had been advised that we would lose a few but i am starting to get discouraged that every time i go to check on them there are more dead ones is this normal? ... any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
A concerned mama!
