We picked up our chicks on Saturday afternoon. It's not going so too well. Two of our six chicks have died. The Silver Lace within hours of bringing her home she was fine drinking eating pooping then just stopped moving around and died. The Black Sex Link died early this morning despite 40 hours of feeding her water with a dropper every 45 minutes because she pecked at the feed but refuses to drink right from the start. My husband, who is a physician in an trauma center, cried. I'm sad. My kids cried. The other four are peppy and active.The temp in the brooder is 88 degrees, cooler than recommended but they are roaming all over and even hopping up on the little perches we set up. I nearly caused a riot when I gave then some shredded spinach for dinner. Apparently they all only want the piece that's already in another chick's beak.
