    What do the chicks act like before they die? Any unusual behaviors?

    What do you keep them in?

    Adding these details will help us figure out if the issue is the food or something else.

    Are you feeding them chick starter?

    Quote:Seems like its not the food.

    Did you do research on keeping chicks before you got them? What temps they need, how to house them, what to use for bedding etc?

    That doesn't help - you need to know what kind.
