    I got six bantam chicks from tractor supply and each day one has died. But the way they die and why is what I do not understand. The first chick that died looked like it was gasping for air. The second idk it was dead already. The third was fine and out of no where it jumped in the air a couple of times and just fell and started gasping for air also but just moments before it was perfectly fine running around and eating. So please help before more die.

    How old are they, and what is the temperature where they are? Do they have a heat lamp? Have you checked the temp during both the day and the night?
