First they get all weak and their legs spread out and the other chicks ignore them. then they lay on their sides and die. What is happening? I already had one chick die and now another is doing the same thing what should I d?

I think the experts might need more information to help you. How old are they, what are you feeding them, what is your brooder set up, what is the heat source and how warm is it in the brooder, where did the chicks come from?

The chicks are all 6 days old and I am feeding them Purina chick feed. It is about 85 degrees in the brooder and I got the chicks locally.
