    I've had 2 peachicks out of a surviving 6 die today. I've noticed they've had drooping wings, and I don't want to lose any more. However, I'm getting very confused reading old posts on the subject.

    Anyone with a concrete plan on helping these little guys out? Plan on running to the store in the morning.

    Thanks so much!!!

    All my chicks died. One by one their wings began to droop, and despite my efforts to save them, using antibiotics, vitamins and dewormers, they each died.

    Their only symptoms appeared to be droopy wings and at some point they stopped drinking. I would love to find out what caused this so I don't have to go through the same thing next year.

    Also, my peahen had started wheezing, but she seems to be cured of that, as far as I can tell. I gave her the same treatment as her chicks.

    I'm so sorry. I've never lost a peachick before. I hope you find the answer before you hatch your next clutch
