So I decided I wanted to add a few polish to my flock. I just love them! I found a lady local who breeds them and has tons of chicks . I originally traded my aracaunna pair to her for 4 chicks. One had a splayed leg, no biggie, easy fix. Two died, one left healthy. So I told her and she said she would make it right, gave me two more, and said she had 2 left and was going out of town, so I bought them. One had a wad of poop stuck to it the size of a pong ball!!! Others looked healthy. I cleaned up the bird, gave a mix of electrolytes and probiotics. A few days later one of them died, next day was the other. I had two left...till this morning when the last two died....the lady said she has had trouble with the top hats and lost 38! What could cause it? Are they a hard breed to raise? I've never had this much trouble with chicks.....any input would be great! She's giving me 4 more in a few weeks once they hatch. Just looking for ideas to prevent death again.
