I just went down into my garage, and I found a dead chick. It was wedged between the wire of my cage, with its leg sticking out. I’m literally in tears! This is my second chick to die. I don’t think it was illness, just pure stupidity. My theory is that the chick tried to escape it’s brooder; got stuck, and thrashed until it broke it’s neck. I’m down to 5 silkie chicks. I started with 7! The chicks are going to be 4wks old on Friday. What I’m most sad about is that we bought these chicks straight run, which means the gender is un-determined. We can’t keep a rooster. If y’all pray, pray that we have some pullets!!! If y’all have any information, advice, or encouragement I will gladly take it!
