My baby chicks are smothering each other. I started out with 8 French Marans and now I am down to 6. At 4wks old I had my first chick loss. I went to bed and it was fine, in the morning it had been smothered. At 5wks old I have now had my second loss. I went to bed and it was fine, in the morning it was at the bottom of the pile. It is anywhere from 90-80 at night and they have more than enough room. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Why are chicks getting smothered? I leave a table lamp on for them so they are not completely in the dark. Chick #1 died with the night light on so I figured it might be too dark. Chick #2 died with the table lamp on. /sigh Ive never cared for baby chicks before so I am at a wee bit of a loss. When the first one died I thought it was normal, when I picked the one up this morning that had died, I actually cried. Am I doing something wrong?
