I just had the weirdest thing happen. This is my fourth batch of baby chicks I have raised and never have I seen this…I just finished changing the water, food and paper on the bottom of their container and all ten were running and flapping around for about an hour having a grand ole time in their clean area. While I was still in my garage(where they are), I heard more flapping and running and peeping, when all of the sudden, I heard like a shrieking peep so I went over and looked and saw one of them on her back, with her wings flapping like she couldn't get up or she was stuck. So I reached in to pick her up and flip her over and she died right in my hand! I am so upset. I can't believe it. Has anyone ever had that happen before? I don't know if when they were running and playing she hit her head or broke her neck or what…I am just in shock about it right now…so strange….
