Ok, hi, I'm new here. My name is melissa "proud new chicken mommy 86" I started raising chickens about 8 or 9 months ago. My first 5 are still alive, happy, and spoiled. Very well mannered and so sweet. But, every time I get new baby chicks... They die. I can't figure out why. I'm doing the same thing I did with the first ones. Nothing at all different. They dont act different. they are separated until they get big enough to roam with the big chickens, so the big ones aren't killing them. My big ones are actually very motherly. can someone please point me in the right direction so I can try to put a stop to new babies dying? My poor heart can't take no more.
