I am a "new chicken" owner and received my first chicks on Tuesday. I ordered 6 and they all survived shipping and looked perfectly healthy. They began eating and drinking immediately. I purchased a chick starter kit, with brooder supplies and have their brooder temperature at 95 degrees (thermometer in brooder).
Yesterday when I got home from work, one was dead and this morning another one was dead. They seem perfectly fine. they are active and eating and drinking. I have created the pefect environment for them.
I would love any advice as to why they may be dieing. Does this usually happen with chicks or should I be concerned about the others?
I'm planning on calling the compnay I purchased them from as soon as they open at 10:00.
