In the Brooder
- Apr 25, 2017
We’re 7 weeks into raising our CX. It’s our first time with this breed of chickens. I found one this morning that didn’t get up to eat. Her skin is blueish/purple and there is a slight wheeze to her breathing. I’m thinking heart attack which I know can happen to them as they get bigger. I have her quarantined, and I don’t expect her to make it much longer. We feed them 12 hours of the day. Is there anything else we should’ve done? I’ve read that some feed a lower protein than the 22%. Any advice would be much appreciated for the next time around.
