    So my last batch of babies i had no luck with! Out of 8, 3 have survived. Now out of the last 3, 1 lost its beak.... not totally, but most of it is gone.... There is a small nub if u will. It is eating, but not much... its not growing like the other 2.... Any advise?

    I was told the last batch had upper respitory problems.... The other 2 are perfectly fine...

    yikes.. I've never heard that before. Can you get a picture? And is the chick eating and drinking or can it not?

    Hmmm...you may want to post this under the injuries/illnesses thread--I bet you'll get lots more responses there. I hope you find out what's happening to your chicks!
