    My chicks came yesterday, all seemed in pretty good health and spirits. I noticed one not quite as active last night, went to Tractor Supply this morning to get Sav-A-Chick, but she didn't make it. One of my buff orpigtons. [​IMG]

    So sorry to hear about your loss. [​IMG] It's not unusual to have a chick die due to the stress of travel, don't blame yourself.

    Sorry for your loss, I just lost one today as well so I know how hard it can be. Good luck with raising the other chicks though, I hope everything goes swimmingly.
