    Hey everyone,

    I bought 35 chicks that usps delivered today. I bought a good variety so am needing a little help identifying the two I lost. Here is a list of the chick I got.
    Road island red, Colombian Wyandotte, Delaware, silver leghorn, silver laced Wyandotte, partrige rock, buff Minorca, dominique, barred rock, ameraucana, cuckoo maran, New Hampshire, red leghorn, and welsummers.

    Here are the pics of the two I've lost.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Poor little ones. 3 more seem a little week but seem to be getting better.

    They made it through the night but still seem weak. I keep an eye on them through the day.

    Ameraucana (would actually be an EE) and RIR. Are you giving them sugar water, or electrolytes? Can you get some Poultry Nutri-drench? this is a vitamin that can directly be absorbed into the blood stream without having to go through the whole gut. I'd get some sugar water and electrolytes into them, along with the nutri-drench.

    Yes, I'm doing all of those things. The one was doa. And the red was the worst looking out of all of them. Was very very weak from the start. Had a few others that seemed a little weak but they seem like they are doing a lot better now.

    I'm figured the first one was either a silver leghorn or an EE.
