I have lost 6, six or seven week old chicks this week. They are outside in a large coop and good sized run. The first three that died seemed to have been squished by the other chicks in the night, because they were outside in the run instead of in the coop under the heat lamp. So I started putting them up at night and letting them out in the morning. It has not been below 45 degrees here so I can't imagine that they would be that cold. The next three I guess were too dumb to go into the coop the next day and get out of the rain and drowned or just got soaked to death. Has anyone else had this problem? I am very frustrated and heart broken because they were all my EE chicks and now I have none. What am i doing wrong that they wont go into the coop at night and get under the heat lamp? Am I putting them outside too early?
