In the Brooder
- Feb 26, 2011
I had a White Rock Pullet chick die on me sometime last night, I found her this morning. I have about 25 chicks in a pen/brooder (8 x 6) with two heat lamps (100 watt bulbs) about 12 inches high and plenty of food and water to go around. The only thing I can think of is that the lights weren't low enough But where she was laying was in between the food and light (about 2 feet). She smelled a little bad, like guts; not strong but you could tell. They are on medicated 27% protein game/broiler feed, Anyone have any suggestions? I didn't know if some just die or if i did something wrong. Thanks guys and gals.
