Personally I wouldn't recommend free ranging them. They don't really move around much. They mostly just want to hang out by their feeder.
Did I read that correctly you lost 4 chicks in the first 5 hours you had them?
Yes. After recounting it turns out they sent me 12 and I've lost six.Did I read that correctly you lost 4 chicks in the first 5 hours you had them?
That really stinks, time to find a different hatchery. Good luck with the 6 you have.Yes. After recounting it turns out they sent me 12 and I've lost six.
They were in the mail since the 28th of November and they stayed overnight in the postal warehouse with an overnight temp of 29 F. So yes. I am happy that I have six. I also think they have cocci so I am treating for that and hoping that I don't lose more.
