    For about a week I was sick and unable to check on the chickens. The person I asked to check on them for me failed to provide anything for the chickens just looked to make shure they wernt dead. :hethey took my 3 week old BR's and Frizzle Bantam OUT of the brooder (away from my heat lamp [​IMG] ) because they said the chicks where too hot. I went today and one of my best hens was dead in the nest box and the Frizzle Bantam was dead in the isolation pen with a ROOSTER and her BR sisters. Anyway the BR's are chilly and I took them home and put them in the baby baby brooder with my week olds. The smalest one is fluffed up and trying to snuggle up under her sister. Besides the blow drier and heating pad what can I do for the poor little ones?


    Edited to add: The little shivery one's temperatue is about 102.1 (took it with digatal thermeter under her wing)
