So, I received 21 baby chicks on Monday. All look to be healthy and thriving except one who is obviously dying. My question is should I remove it now, or wait till it passes? Should it be separated just in case in has a disease? Thank you!

I would remove it from the others if you know it is past recovery. Sometimes some chicks just don't make it. Could be a genetic defect. If you see others getting ill I would definitely post in the emergency section. Best of luck!!

If it is ill then whatever it has has already been passed to the others. But I would remove it and cull it rather than leave it in to either get trampled or eaten alive by the others.
