I just got my 26 day old chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery today, and my Mottled Houdans were sickly right from the start. It's only been 6 hours since I've had them, and one has already died. Does anyone know if Mottled Houdans are particularly hard to raise, and if so, how can I help the others? I bought several different breeds, and the rest are doing great, only the Houdans are sick. Symptoms: Sluggish Will only drink a drop or two (I have to put it right up to their beaks) Eating little, if at all Want to just lay down, face first, eyes closed Should I contact the hatchery or is this normal? I usually buy from the local feed and seed, and just thought I'd try this route since I wanted so many different breeds. Should I leave the sick ones in the brooder or take them out? Thanks, any help is great.
