Hi Everyone! We recently purchased 15 baby chicks! We've lost three. A little background: we have read every book and forum you can think of to research before our purchase a year in advance. Our brooder is a huge , long, three ring pool. It's a $19.95 wal-mart purchase. Half of the brooder is set up with puppy pads covering the flooring with two waterers (filled with water, a little apple cider vinegar, and save-a-chick), a very small dusting pan (sand and DE), and a 14 hole feeder with crumbled and rooster booster vitamins (correctly measured in ratio). The other half is pine shavings, a thermometer, two perch branches, and hung from our ceiling from an anchor is their heat lamp. It stays at 91-95 and we will move it up next week. They have tons of room to move around to cool off and play. I change their shavings and puppy pads and water and feed daily! We have lost three baby chicks so far. They were only a few days old even after I tried to dip their beaks in water when they became lethargic. That seems to be their only symptom is lethargy. Their poop was fine and they were eating, drinking, playing fine within 24 hours of them getting hit hard with lethargy. Is it just an unfortunate thing or should I go ahead and buy corid to be safe? No blood or runny stools at all. No gasping or panting until their last moments.
