    Okay, we are having some problems here. I have chicks that are just not making it. They hatched last weekend. I have lost over half of them. I have never had this happen before.

    First of all, I want to say the chicks were not very vigorous. I had to show them multiple times how to drink get water. I put the food on top of the paper towels just like I always do.

    Then I started noticing some kind of walked up on there tip toes, while others started to bend backwards. I told my Mom that is looks like we are having chick exorcisms! Its like they are having some kind of nerve disorder, or muscle spasms.

    I don't know, but I cried. I had to put some of them down. It just seemed more humane then watching them flop around.

    These where not my eggs, they were shipped eggs. Maybe there was a vitamin defincancy or who knows. That's why I feed my chickens like breeders, not just egg producers.

    So sorry heatherscooby! that is so rough after you hatched them out!

    Can you contact whoever you got them from to see if there is a problem at the source? So many things that can go wrong in the genetics and such....

    Is anybody there? Hellooooooooo?
    Bad idea going to bed at six(ish). I have a headache, and am now too awake to go back to sleep. Maybe I will go outside, and have a big fire. See what the chickens are doing. Do you think they will attack me for waking them? [​IMG]
    O kay. I will try to go to bed. BYE!!!!!! Hope everyone is sleeping well![​IMG]
