Sorry for your losses. With a draft free area and heat lamp they should be fine. Try rationing the food let them eat what they want in the day but take the food at night and only give them water. See if that cuts down on your losses. i did 27 and lost none of them with food rationing and letting them be a little bit cooler as they generate so much body heat. They will eat themselves to death. If they are eating day and night it is too much and their body is over stressed.

I will try the food rationing. Ventilation could be the problem. I am keeping them inside my garage. I am going to move them out to their coop this weekend. Hopefully with a heatlamp they should be fine.

I started rationing 2 days ago when they were 1 week and 1 day old.
