    been raising chickens for years...sometimes I buy..sometimes incubate and never had this problem..other chicks seem fine, but so did these......I have never tried this breed before..are they possibly weaker?

    I don't think they are weaker because of the breed or mix of breeds actually.
    Maybe they had a rough ride?

    It is impossible to try to problem solve without any details at all.

    How old are they?

    It could be that the ground corn is creating a deficit in nutrients......especially if they can pick it out and eat mostly that.
