    I hatched some poults last thursday. All were doing great..until saturday. One was hunched up and shaking it's head back and forth then finally became to weak to hold his head up and died. Yesterday everyone was doing great running around eating and drinking so I let them run around on the floor. Now this morning another one is doing the same thing. It is just sitting there hunched up and shaking it's head a little bit. I have been mixing some probiotics in the water, but I don't think it is helping.

    Lost another one...
