We went out into the garage this evening to find one of our month old chicks laying dead in their enclosure. They have a heat lamp, the brooder is relatively clean (fresh shavings 4 days ago) their water and food is changed twice a day. The garaged is closed so there's no chance of predators getting in. I have no idea what happened to him. He was fine and then he was gone (I get really attached to my birds). We were thinking of sending him to UC Davis for a necropsy but it's a little costly. Has anyone else had a chick just die for no real reason? I feel like we take care of them the best we can, but now I'm not so sure.
