    I have a chick that is looking really sickly Im guessing that it will die but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what happened with it.
    Heres a picture of it, it just hatched and I just took it out of the bator and it was like this. That is an eggshell attatched to it.

    It’s very sad that your chickens are getting new types of disease but you know these types of disease really getting into animals specially chickens. I am also trying to figure out the bird flu effects on chickens and you know my information is getting into new bondages.

    What are you trying to say? And how does that link pertain to chickens?

    OSUman Sorry for your loss. Sometimes chicks just don't make it. At least the poor little mite didn't suffer long.

    RIP Little Chick

    It looks like something with the umbilical, it looks like it didn't fully absorb. It's sad to say that some chicks are born and die, and we don't know the reason. Sorry about your chick.
