    Hi and welcome.
    A little more information would help in finding the possible causes of the problems you are having and the things you can do differently to avoid those problems.
    When your previous chicks have died, what symptoms were they showing, when did they start to show these symptoms, how long between symptoms showing and death, how were you keeping them, etc? What is the medicated powder you are using? Where did you get your chicks from?
