I have hatched my own poultry out...And infact I have 24 healthy chicks running around that are 16 weeks old that I hatched and raised myself. I decided to Order some chicks from ideal and out of the 50+ I have ordered I have lost over half my flock now slowly they die for no apparent reason. I care for them the same as the ones's I have hatched myself. Its very furstrating. I had 10 ducks and now down to 4!! I am down to 20 or so chicks. I am just ticked. This isn't my first rodeo with ducks, chicks, geese, or anything and I can't seem to do anything right to keep them alive.
