    I'm sorry you lost most of your babies. I think if you're going to post asking for company for your only chick, you should give some idea of where you are.

    I am wondering why 9 chicks are dead? That is so sad and so utterly unacceptable. Post office delay? Travel in extreme heat? (bad bad time for moving birds in many locales). What do you think happened? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Soo sorry about your chick's.It's been fairly hot everywhere so maybe the heat.If you were close(Im In Virginia) I have quite a few baby chicks right now mostly OEGB a few silkie's, and sumatra/OEGB mix.
