my dad whent outside to see my chicks this morning and one was shakeing and by himself..... my dad said he picked him up and he seemed fine, he put him back in and he ran with the other chicks and seemed fine...... he died later
.He didnt have any symptoms he just acted like everyother chick, and then this morning..... dose anyone know how? what should i do with the other chicks?
the others are fine there acting like normal chickys!
my dad had a theory, the lady we bought them from put them in a box, and when we got home we cut a hole in the box and made it so they could go in and out.They sleep in it at night its adorable
, but they peck it in the day time ( i guess when there bored) and my dad thought they maybe eating pieces of the cardboard and its swelling in there tummys or necks..... i took out the box just in cause it was true. Dose anyone know?
i may put a heat lamp in there tonight, but its pretty hot at night here in florida, dose anyone in florida have any suggestions, about the heat lamp?
i still have a heat lamp at night on my babies, but I'm over protective.. hehe. I have it so if they get under it they can, but if they don't then they can get away from it. I'd try it at night and see if they stay under it, you can use a reg 100 watt lamp bulb so it won't be too hot. If they stay under it most of the evening then they probably still need it, if they stay away from it like the plague, then they probably don't.
