    I ordered chicks and received them yesterday, another two have died. One was a Gold Sex Link and one was a Silver Laced Wyandotte. They both started by not wanting to stand, then they lay down, start opening and closing their beaks, they have both started making jerking movements (like a seizure) and then die. None died during the night. Don't what this to happen to any more, any ideas?

    I am so sorry!!! I really don't know. I lost more than a few the in the first week with my chicks, was told they must have been weak.[​IMG]

    Have you tried the sugar water and mashed boiled egg, to help the weaker ones?[​IMG]

    I have tried sugar water but may have given it to them to late. They all seemed fine first thing this morning, when I left for work.
