    Struggling with our 3 day old pheasant chicks.

    They seem to be doing well and then start flipping over on their backs and being unable to get up.

    Whats going on?

    They are getting game bird starter...

    Im experienceing something similar... a few hatch out ok and very few hatch crippled.

    My hatchlings stay in the hatcher for about 24 to 48 hours... then I move them to a small brooder with a heat light, water, and food. They get game bird feed. Then a few days later, the smaller ones die. Any Ideas?
