    Okay a few days ago i got some newborn baby chicks. I hatched them out of an incubator and followed all the instruction the past 21 days. I hatched 7 baby chicks. Today 2 died. I know 1 died because i beileve it had a crooked neck. It seemed okay but it wouldn't move, eat, or drink. I don't know what is wrong with it. And now I have my favorite baby chick doing the same. It drinks a lil bit but it won't move or eat. I really need some help on what is wrong with my baby chick.

    get some polyvisolwithout iron it is a baby vitamin and works on chicks too. where the eggs from your chickens or did you buy the eggs. sometimes the feed that is fed to breeder chickens is not high enugh in protein for the breeders and it makes small unhealthy chicks, also small eggs or eggs that are bigger than normal will hatch unhealthy chicks, but they can be saved with deligence and love.
