This is my first year raising chickens. We went small and only ordered 30 chicks. 6 were layers (2 rhodes, 2 barreds and 2 austrolorps) and 24 were broilers. We initially recieved 7 layers (all of which seem to be doing very well) and 26 broilers. 2 of the broiler chicks were doa in the box and we have since lost 5. I understand that there is a normal amount of this that happens but am nervous that maybe im doing something wrong. They have a 4x8 brooding pen that stays a good 95* and have all been eating and drinking well. I layed down newspaper for the first 2 days and just yesterday pulled that out to reveal the layer of pine shavings. When they die they just seem to go out of the blue. They lay down and dont get back up. I guess mostly im just wondering if this is normal? Thanks for any help!
