    Hi Everyone
    I am from Cape Town on the southern tip of Africa.

    I recently got 10 6 week old koekoek chicks I am trying to raise. Unfortunately 2 have died over the last couple of days.

    I'm here to learn a little and hopefully not lose any more chicks.

    Cheers
    Mark

    Hello Mark!! Welcome from California. The best way to find information to save your precious chicks is to do a search specific to new chicks. Also, look up your specific breed and post what the issues you are encountering. You will find some wonderful people here who are willing to help.

    What are your specific issues?
