    Picked up the chicks (1.5 weeks) from a friend last night and I had one that seemed less active. Well, it died in my hands this morn. Seemed to have trouble getting a breath and then upon death, fluid came from it's beak...Any ideas? what should I watch for with the rest. Didn't seem to have excess diahrrea...They have a heat lamp and shredded paper for bedding. Help.

    I'm so sorry. I don't know enough about chick health to make any recommendations, but I've lost a baby bird before and I know it sucks (kudos, though, for being with your little one-- that's hard). I hope all the rest are happy and healthy!

    I am so sorry you lost a baby. Can't tell you what happened but wish you the best of luck with the rest of the fuzzy butts.[​IMG] It is so hard to lose one. Just know we care.
