    My wife hatched chicks at school with her kinder class and then brought them home where we raised them. Now one of the hens has laid and hatched chicks. They all are dying, please help

    We need more info than that...how old are they? Are they acting sick or just dying? Are there other chickens around that could be pecking them? etc...

    They are confined away from the other birds. There were two hatched on Oct 31 and died that night and two more hatched yesterday Nov. 1 and they were dead this morning. They seemed fine.

    Do they have chick food and water? A warm place to be? I'm not an expert, but I know they need those.

    Where are you located? Are they outside and if so is the mother keeping them warm?
