    I woke up this morning to find my dear little (might be older I have to check) 2 month old Sicillian Buttercup chick laying down. I thought it was weird because the others were scratching around and digging. When one stepped on her she lifted her head a little and waved it around like she was dizzy and then her head just dropped. She just passed away within minutes of that happening. Note: the heat lamp did die during the night but the lowest it got was in the 60s and there are A LOT of chicks in the to keep her warm if she was cold. I had something like this happen last year when I moved my chicks into the coop, 11 died and only 2 survived. She I treat for coccidiosis? I'm petrified I'm going to lose them all. Please help!!
