    I got 12 cornish crosses and 5 BR's from Ideal last week. They were a week old yesterday. This morning I found one cornish cross dead. No obvious signs of trauma. Does this just happen sometimes? I've never had such little chicks before.

    It does happen, and often times, it's a complete mystery. So sorry to hear that.
