    hello,

    any signs of sickness or disease? Are they warm enough? Do they have a heat lamp? Did they show any changes in behavior or appearance?

    Quote:How old are the Ko Shamo chicks? Are all the chicks around the same age. I had this happen in tyhe summer because I had three week old and day olds together and the heat killed most of the three week olds. Whats the temp at?

    Control the heat when birds are young Week 1 85* degrees week 2 80* week 3 75* and 5* degrees lower each week until fully feathered. ko shamos are a lightly feathered bird and need the full 6 or 7 weeks to get finished until put out in the coop. Vitamin drops in the water and some TLC.
