First time ordering chickens online(Through Tractor supply which I believe order from Hoover's Hatchery) I placed an Order for 10 Random Brown egg layers. They shipped Tuesday(2/28/17) and didn't arrive till this morning(3/3/17). Upon opening the box from the post office 2 were laying dead in the box, one was on his way out, 2 were perfectly fine, and the rest were extremely weak totaling 11. As of now I have 5 alive kinda. The two original healthy ones are as happy as can be, one more seems like it will pull through the rest just sitting face down not lookin to good. This isn't the first time I have raised chicks. I dipped each head into the water and watched them chugg it down, showed the ones walking where the food was and they took to it easily. Once I realized how weak the majority of them were I went to our feed store to see if they had the Vitamins for the water, but sadly they did not I believe that the random cold front that blow through this week might have done the most damage, any other tips or ideas? The breeds seem to be mostly Gold Sex Link, are they a less hardy bird?
