We had a healthy hatch of 8 polands and they have been dying one by one with no obvious cause.

    We have had nothing like this happen before. We thought it was because they were wondering away from their heat box so we put a lamp up instead. They were still dying so we have brought them inside with the brooder heat plate. Today another one died. They are eating and drinking so what is going on?

    I am sorry for you losses.
    What does their poop look like and what is the exact temperature in the brooder under the lamp?
