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.


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

The two were dead when they arrived, and one died to injuries during shipping

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.
