    I received a group of chicks Thursday from a NPIP and certified mycoplasma free hatchery. In the first few hours I lost five, six more have died with another dying. I have the temperature 90-95 at one end with a cooler end. Medicated Purina and water first with save a chick and sugar then with ACV and thus morning when I mixed I added corrid. They appear weak and listless, and two have splatted out a bit with wings out. This one I dipped it's beak,and left in drinking. When I came back from the other brooder it was back under the light and splayed out.
    The second time I took her to water this morning she pooped this on me.

    Are all of the eating and drinking?

    Did you check their bottoms, see if they were pasted over?

    I think corrid is for if you see blood in the poop, did you?

    I would think the hatchery would at oeast replace the ones that died within 24 hours of arrival.
