    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sorry you are having trouble. [​IMG]

    How old are your chicks? Unfortunately loosing chicks a part of hatching....
    Did your incubator fail?

    Will try to help more if I can.

    Sorry for your loss. I have lost many shipped chicks. (more than 30, mostly bantam and spent 1 day extra in the mail.) It was very hard to not be able to help those precious cute babies. [​IMG]

    My 2 incubators are great, works perfect, the warming box stay about 95 at all times, there is a cooling box attached so they hop back and forth at will. the last one that died was still chirping and died in my hands. he had what i could only describe as snot coming out of his nose and mouth but that was only after he died. i have everything in my bedroom as i have had since the beginning, new mom and all, there are 3 grown people watching them constantly. this check died in less than 5 minutes. i wondered if the others trampled him, there were only 6 in the box and it is a big box with plenty on room to run around. he WAS healthy as a horse! suggestions please. i cry with each one. moma said don't name them so i call them chicken nuggets.
