    A bit of history. We got new chicks Sunday evening. Got them home and bloody poop in box. Started all 10 on corrid. This morning 1 died, another just died one hour ago and another is very lathargic and looks like he may go next.
    Now a different chick has started wheezing.....wheezing fairly bad. The others did not wheeze.
    Suggestions?! This is just heart breaking.

    How old are they? Is the broader warm? Are they drinking?

    Brooder is warm.
    They seem to be eating and drinking. The ones that died lost interest in food and water.
    They seem to be moving around. Im just not sure about this wheezing that has started.

    Pictures of your setup? How warm is the warm zone? How cool is the cool zone? What are you using for bedding?
