Hello I am in desperate need of some advise. I have or had thirty new babys I kept them indoors for quit a while. They had and still have a heat light in a good size area. In the coop. They are able to get out of the heat if they need. Plenty of chick starter and reg chicken feed along with water. I will check on then in the AM and all is fine around lunch I will check on them again and one or two will be sitting off alone. They will have there wings lowered and kind of fluffed up they look like they are tired. When I come back out they are lying on there side and are very week and unable to keep there head up. There crops are empty, no pasty butts. I am going to take a large kennel out there and put all the babys in it to keep them away from the four adults I have.. Any advice or direction would be great. I am having two to three dye a day, the 5 week olds and the 3 week old are the ones dying.
