    I had a baby die today, he was fine and a hour later he was down with weird breathing. When I came back to check on him he was maybe convulsing and lots of liquid from his mouth?

    He died.

    I noticed a few of the chicks have been laying down with their head down. But when I walk up the get up.
    Is that a sigh they are sick?


    I dont think I will buy them from a flea marked again [​IMG]

    Isolate them right away. They need to be quarantined. Especially since you got them from a flea market. They could have a contagious disease!

    I cant "really" say they are sick. they pop up fast and move when I come close.

    Is it normal for them to sleep at the feed bowl standing up with head down a little?
