Our chicks were healthy, happy, chirping and eating. They were getting crowded so we put half in the brooder and half in another brooder. We moved the first brooder out on the porch-still with heat lamp and a blanket over the small window to keep heat in. That night it was around 50 degrees. We also went from cracked corn to the medicated chick starter from the local co-op. The next morning, we found 11 dead chicks! That morning, we put a hotter bulb in thinking they got cold-then by night-10 more died!!? We brought them inside in a card board box thinking there was something in the brooder making them die, but they keep dropping off in the new box inside the house. No funky poo, no runny noses; they seem perfectly healthy--but then BOOM they'll start lying around and not eating. I was thinking maybe I got a bad batch of chick starter, so bought another brand at the co-op. We put Teramyacin (sp?) in the water to see if that would help them. We've lost all 10 of our Frizzles and most of our Top Hats...the regular types are doing fine. I ordered these from Murray Hatchery and almost all from there have died within the month. We lost 11 after the first 48 hours from their delivery and Murray sent new ones but most of those died, too. Please help. What did I do wrong? What can I do to save the rest? And to top it off, our baby lamb that we were bottle feeding, in a diaper, living inside with us ate some of the chick starter and died today, too. It's a terrible couple of days here at the farm.
