Just want to say hi and thank you in advance for the help and joy we hope to get from the byc website. We, as a large family, have been enjoying raising our small flock of laying chicks/hens and eating the fresh eggs daily for a few years now. We just got a new batch of 15 chicks on Saturday and sorry to say we already have 4 dead ones. We are hoping we didn't get a bad batch & that they'll all be dead shortly. Since we have not had this problem in the past, I instantly "googled" info and I'm happy to say found the byc web page. Now I best be getting busy and find out what's wrong with the chicks that my children are already in love with.
