Yesterday we get a call from the Shreveport post office(over 1hr away) saying that we might want to pick up our chicks...never a good sign. All other chicks have been brought to our local post office for pick up. Upon receiving the box, it felt damp. There were 16 dead chicks out of 52(one smooshed by the box divider-obviously done by Meyer). On the ride home another 4 died. Before lights out we lost another 7-all were acting normal until they laid down & died. This morning we woke up to almost all the chicks laying down, they are chirping, just not moving or breathing well. What is wrong with these chicks? Can the remaining be saved? Can these chicks infect my others? This is quite honestly the worst chick experience ever & my kids(9&12) are very sad with each dead chick. To the point that they dont want to go in the laundry room out of fear there will be more dead...keep in mind we already have 40-4 & 5 wk old chicks that they adore. Just so hard.
