I woke this morning to 2 dead chickies. 1 Leghorn and 1 Ameracauna. They all seemed fine yesterday. I saw what I assume were these 2 sleeping a long period of time last night. But I checked their breathing and just figured they had found a quiet place to catch some z's without being interrupted. I know that some chicks will just die, but if I can help it, no more will. The first thing I did was check the temperature and it was around 96-97. But I've noticed my 4 day old chicks sleeping away from the heat. So I raised the lamp up a little and it's now dropped about 10 degrees. It's at 87 right now and they are STILL sleeping away from the heat. The thermometer reads 87 and the lamp is positioned right over the thermometer. Notice how they are all away from it. It's not because the thermometer is there either. It's been there before and they would just sleep ON it. I'm not sure what to do. Help! I don't want to lower the temperature too much or keep it so high they are uncomfortable. I had no idea chicks would be such such fickle little things.
