I am asking for expert help. We have week old chicks from Meyer. We had 2 DOA and one die two days later. Today, everyone was healthy - eating, drinking, and active. Two very suddenly were panting, then thrashing, and then they died. We switched them from newpaper with paper toweling to pine shavings yesterday. Does anyone know if them dying had anything to do with the switch. I really need to know what to do to keep everyone else healthy. We don't have a coated bulb and we are using Purina Start and Grow. I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
