    Hello all!
    I have 18 (now 17 [​IMG] ) 2 week old Meat birds. One died last night. Just looked in on them and it was dead...2had gotten out of the brooder and I am not sure for how long. Could that have been the cause of its death?

    If it had no heat lamp I would say so, I'm sorry about that.
