I have a plastic tote turned into a brooder via a youtube tutorial. I have been feeding them mfa medicated feed. I use paper towels with pine on top. Temp seems good. I went to the farm store and bought some medication for their water at the advice of the hatchery after I called to ask why my chicks were dying. That brought little to no improvement. I am at my wits end. Not only is this really sad but expensive and exhausting too. Oh, I've also given them some bananas and goodies from the garden in hopes it would help. They seem to enjoy it but its not helped the mortality issue. I am new to this and I've bought everything and my husbands already built a fancy coop but I just want to give up. I sure didn't expect this after all the great things I read about chicken farming on the internet. Please help. My three kids and I feel hopeless.
