    The chicks are two weeks old. One was definetly smaller, and kind a of "floppy". I wasn't noticing any bad poops. Yesterday I noticed it seemed to get trampled and pushed around. It was also dirty ( not pruning). I separated it and watched. It would drop a semi solid poop, and then dark brown liquid. It was eating well in isolation. This morning it is dead.

    I'm sorry to hear that- Its really hard to see a chick get sick, and harder to loose it completely. [​IMG]

    Don't blame yourself- Its just Nature, and you were a good chick parent anyway! Your other chicks will still be healthy!
