    We have lost a chick a day for the past 5 days. They are only one week old right now. My Husband noticed that every chick that has died has a black spot on the bottom of its feet. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what we can do. We dont want to loose all our chicks, we only have 17 left at this point!
