I just got 25 chicks from a hatchery 3 days ago. As some of you read in another post, I lost two chicks the first night. I found them outside the mama heating pad and figured they died from exposure to the cold. Then when I got up this morning, I went out to check on them and I only counted 22 chicks so I checked under the mama heating pad and I found another dead chick???? Now I would normally chalk this up to me being inexperienced and I must have done something wrong....but all 3 chicks were the Australorps... could it be that the Australorps came from the hatchery with issues? I am watching the other two and they seem to be ok but so was the other one last night? The chick I found under the mama heating pad was way in the back so I know it wasn't exposure to the cold. Any insight from experienced chicken owners would be so helpful.
