    I have lost 6 chicks in the last 3 days!! they have plenty of fresh water and feed, I can only imagine they are either cold or they don't have good enough ventilation I put a heat lite in with them. gave them save a chick additive, and the door to their coop is open but I am still finding them dead!!!??? any ideas

    how old are the? My guess would be they are getting too cold if you have them outside and they aren't fully feathered.
