Just wondering if anyone has received a recent order from Meyers? I picked up 40 (no packing peanuts this time) from the post office on Wed., 2/92/12. All looked great and were active, when I introduced them to the brooder. I lost a couple the first day, which didn't concern me too much, as shipping stress usually takes it's toll this time of year. I called Meyer and they were fine with crediting me for the loss and said give them a call if I lost any more. I've since lost two more, one on Thursday night and the latest this morning. The one Thursday, didn't concern me much, as I figured maybe I didn't notice a sick chick. I cleaned pasty butts last night, at about 9pm and all seemed healthy and active. The latest fatality has me a little bit more concerned. They were checked on at 1am this morning and none showed any signs of anything strange. At 8am, we had another dead chick, that had been perfectly healthy at the early morning bed check. It was streached out in that sleeping position, that they sometimes take, when they are getting warm and comfortable. I first thought it was sleeping, until all the others got up and started miling about. As far as chick raising goes, this batch is far from my first rodeo, so, I'm following the same "rules" I always have for years, with excellent results. I not an expert, but, I seem to have good luck with hatching and raising chicks. Whatever killed the latest chick was very sudden. All four of the chicks have been of a different breed, so, I don't think the problem is breed/genetic oriented. I'm wondering if there is some new disease floating around with hatchery chicks, that I hadn't heard about. Anydoby else?
