    Hi ~
    I have 28 three week old layers who are doing great, but also have 25 two week old Jumbo Cornish Rock Cross chicks. They were doing fine until 3 days ago and I've had 1 Jumbo Cornish Rock Cross chick die every morning for the last three days. I'm not sure what's wrong. Any suggestions?

    Are you feeding them 24/7 ?
    I have read that they need to be off the feed at night.

    make sure they have light, water, and food with them and make sure there water isnt too deep because then they might drown.. [​IMG] and make sure they have food 24/7. it cood just be a desease or something your chicks might have gotten.
