    Has anyone bought chicks that just don't make it.

    A week ago I got 10 br pullets from tsc. Out of the 10 I have 3 left.

    I have brooded almost 80 chicks so far this spring and have only lost 3.

    Out of the 10. Lost 3 within the first 3 days. Then 2 about day 6. Then 2 on day 7. Then ones that are left seem small. 1 of those is not acting right and I would say will be gone within a day or 2 unless it' s just really sleepy this morning.

    Nothing has changed in my brooder and chicks I got couple days after the br. Are just fine and growing well.

    Sorry for your losses. :hugs if another dies, can you send it to your veterinary diagnostic lab for a necropsy?
