I just wrote with a similar situation. And need to have a reply before I put the next batch of new chicks in. I will be eager to hear what you are told.

Not sure who you are addressing, but in my case - questioning the strand board and heat - last years chicks were about 4 weeks old - they were cheery and ate and drank well before I moved them - and 24 hours later they were dead, on their sides, scattered about the coop area. This year's batch were about 3 weeks old - same situation. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I had too much heat and the strand board is not the culprit.
