    So my chicks came yesterday from Ideal. Two were dead in the box (these are red broilers) one seems to be deformed and can't walk and another one shakes and will fall over. Both are seperated from the others, but they are drinking - not really eating though. They are so pitiful! It breaks my heart to see them like this. Should I just leave them alone and let nature take it course?

    Thanks!

    No, there is always hope.
