PLEASE HELP! I have (had) six baby 4 week old chicks. Everything was going wonderfully, they were thriving, happy, clean and overall doing wonderfully. The weather today was beautiful so I put them in a cage outside because it was warm enough. At four I checked on all of them and again they were great. I went back an hour later and one chick was dead, another lying with its head down and eyes shut...it died about an hour later. I now have one chick exhibiting the same lethargy as the other one. WHAT went wrong? They were warm, fed, fresh water and completely safe from predators. What on earth is killing my chickens...please help before I lose the remaining four. These babies were gift from my kids. I am heartbroken.
