I got chicks 4 days ago. 2 silkies and 2 unsure chicks. This morning 1 silkie and 1 other died for seemingly no reason. They other two have been loud most of the day. They have been in a large tub with 4 ducklings and 4 older chicks. They had been eating, drinking and pooping fine.
This evening the 2nd silkie was on it's back barely moving. I grabbed it and did the only thing I knew to do, try to give it some chick saver and put it and its sibling in the incubator to Hopefully get it warmed up, if that was the issue.
They have a heat lamp with the rest, but thinking the heat lamp was too low, I moved it up. They are in a large kiddie pool originally.

What could have happened?
