Hey
I have just got my order of 60 chicks on monday (feb 21). Theres a mix of a bunch of different breeds. THEY ARE DROPPING LIKE FLYS. 5 dead withing the last day and a half. The brooder is plenty big. Temp is about 98-100 degrees. They are drinking eating and running around the brooder. They are all spread out when they are lying down. PLEASE HELP ASAP.

Thanks ahead of time
 
Lower the temperature in the brooder. 95 degrees under the lamp, with enough space for the chicks to move to the sides if it's too hot. And plenty, plenty, PLENTY of water so they don't dehydrate, especially with the high heat.
 
Sounds like u r cooking them. Lower the temps and put the lamp off to one side. Chicks will go under the lamp if they're cold...they do need to be able to get away from the heat though.
