    *Sob* I am writing this to see if anyone can help me determine what caused my little production red chickie, Ginger, to die. So here's what happened: I was out when my family discovered that Ginger wasn't acting right. (Ginger was about 4-5 days old) Ginger was outside (with them of course) when they saw that she was lifting her head up and opening and closing her mouth. They took her inside and put some water in an eye dropper, and she drank it. After what seemed like recovery, she died. They don't think that she got sick outside, but rather, that's where they realized it. Any input is appriciated, thanks,

    one very lonely for Ginger, jenny

    I don't know what might've happened to Ginger.
    But I wanted to tell you how sorry I am that you lost her. My heart goes out to you and your family. Take care of yourselves.

    Was it too cold outside for her? If she was 4-5 days old and if she was in cool weather outside it could cause death.

    Oh I'm sorry! [​IMG] Sometimes the little ones are just too weak to live and are beyond help. It is so hard to watch them die despite us trying to help. [​IMG]

    Thanks you all so much! I suppose that it could have been slightly chilly, but we really only take them out when it's warm...
