We lost our first chick today too. I think our garage where the brooder is got cooler than expected. She was lethargic and started falling over. I tried sugar water with no luck. She didn't get a pasty butt though. What are the symptoms of a chick that gets too cold?

OH NO!!!! im so sorry for you! last month i lost 4 chicks cuz i left em out side while i was at the store. it rained and filled the brooder up half way. only 2 lived. ;( my little peckerz and birdy died!!!
birdy and peckerz were my barred rock chicks. birdy nearly died when he was born. peckerz was my brave little man.
only 2 weeks old when they died!!!!


i'm so sorry for your loss. i hope the other chickens are ok.
