    I've got some 4 week old chicks that are dying random. We're under heat lamp outside at night. Not sure what's going on. Noticed the poop was a redder color. 5 have died in the last week. They are on a good starter. Any suggestions need help

    Probably coccidiosis. You can treat with Corid in the water.
