I just went to the farm store and got 2 day old speckled sussex chicks. I already have a brooder set up with 3 week olds in the garage, so I put a divider in the brooder and put the two new chicks in the side closer to the heat lamp. I came in, gave the kids lunch, and went back out to check them, and they are dead??!! Maybe it was too hot? It was 95.. isn't that what it is supposed to be? They had a smaller area, so maybe they could not get away from the heat. The farm store says no guarantees or returns on chicks... I could set up another brooder inside to keep a closer eye on them (I'd need to buy a second heat lamp) , and go back to buy more... or just call it a loss and leave it at that... but I am puzzled. The first bunch that I brooded I did it indoors and had no losses. I set up the brooder in the garage cause it was so messy.. But maybe if I set it up indoors and move it to the garage once they are a week or so old?
