I brought my 8 chicks home Saturday. Today is Friday and I am down to just 3 (well maybe two now) chicks. There is something going through them and killing them. I have a heat lamp on them that is not too hot. I started them on puppy pee pads and paper towels and changed that daily along with their food and water. Their food is the medicated kind and I have only done one round of electrolytes and probiotics in their water. Their poop looks normal until the gasping starts, then it is runny with some white in it. On Tuesday I lost the very weak one/runt. On Tuesday night I noticed one was gasping for air, she died Thursday morning in my hands. I wake up Friday morning and now 2 chicks are dead and one is still gasping for air barely hanging on. Their main symptoms are gasping for air and weakness. I am headed to the vet once they open up to get some antibiotics but I just don't know what to do. I bought these chicks from the local farm store and got attached to all of them and now they're dead, this has been traumatizing for me. I don't know if I can put myself through this again. Any input on what this is?
