    Hi, I am a newbie here and am starting my first flock. I got 12 baby chicks and I lost one within a few days. They all seemed to be fine at first then one looked like she was chirping but no sound came out. The next morning she was dead. Everyone else seemed to be fine. Now a week later another chick is doing the same thing. I know that she is eating and drinking and other than no sound she seems to be just fine. She is scratching the ground, running around, just like all the others. What could be going on? I hope I am not going to loose her too. I have looked everywhere and can't find anything about what this could be. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
