    We have 7 chicks, 5 of them are 4 weeks and 2 are 3 weeks old. Since getting them I have dealt with 1 respiratory thing...happily resolved, 1 bout of cocci...happily resolved, 1 leg issue...not happily resolved :( .... and now 1 chick is scratching the back of her neck bald. Man they better be trouble free adults after all this.

    Not sure why you are having a spate to bad luck with your young ones… they do have enough space and clean food and water? Hopefully things have taken a turn for the better for you.

    Best to you and your chicks,

    Food and water are checked/changed min of twice a day, paper towels too.

    They are a little tight on space though, my 3 makeshift brooders are 3ft X 2ft each and I have the 7 split up between the 3 brooders. We hope to have their outdoor run done pretty soon so they can spend the nice days out side and just come in the brooders at night.
