I have 37 chicks that are 6 days old. We have the brooder set up in a room with no heat other than the heat lamp for them. Our outside temps are at 10 during the day and below zero at night. I lost one chick yesterday, breathing was labored. I brought her in and gave her some warm electrolyte water and put her on a heating pad with a dry washcloth between her and the heating pad. She died about a half hour later. Today I went out to feed and water and discovered another chick with one of it's eyes matted shut. We moved the brooder in the canning room of our house so with the heat lamp they are warmer now. They are not huddled around the heat lamp, but are piled together in a corner. I put the thermometer in the corner and it said it was 68 degrees. Why aren't they huddling under the heat lamp? I checked the temp under the lamp and it was 94. I started them on Terramyacin today, 1 Tblsp. per gallon of water. Is that too much for them being so young? I didn't think to ask the lady at Durvet today. I have brooded lots of chicks, but never had the problems I am having with this batch. They are in a 4 X 4 foot brooder. Also, can I use an antibiotic ointment in the one chicks eye? I did wash it with warm water, but didn't know if I could put some Neopolybac Opthamalic Ointment in it. Also, should I stop or decrease the amount of terramycin in their water? Any help would be appreciated.
