So I went in to TSC to get feed today, and walk by the chick corral where they are just opening the shipping boxes. They didn't pick them up when they arrived and they were not in good shape at all. The first ones out were barely moving and could hardly stand. It was hard to watch, yet I stayed and watched while the woman tried to revive one after another, two of them were just about gone. She put them back in the box to die, and I couldn't stand it! I offered to hold them until they warmed up, and said I would buy them. She put them in a box and said I could have them, saying they wont make it here. I put them in my shirt and waited until she finished putting them in their bins, the poor things were huddled miserably in a pile, so I bought six more,I just hatched 22 on Sunday so I can just put them in with mine, I just felt so sorry for them. I took them out to the car and put them under the heater and they began to perk up and cheep, the two rescued ones in my shirt began to come around too. Once they could stand I put them in with the others, and gave them water and food and they ate and drank like crazy! Well, the two rescued ones didn't try to eat and drink on their own, so I gave them some water with electrolytes, which seemed to perk them up a little more. Then one of them just lay down and couldn't stand or hold up it's head, it had a couple seizures or spasms where it's legs stretched out and it's head pulled back and then wove back and forth, then it died. The other one was fine for a couple more hours and ate and drank then it started being droopy again too, so I gave it some electrolytes, but to no avail as it passed away in the same manner. Anybody know why? Just some more info; They both had loose runny bright green stools, all of them do actually, but the green I think is from the gel food they ship with them, because now that the others have had some real food it is going back to normal color. They are droopy, letting their wings hang. The other thing I noticed is their feet are thin looking and the veins stand right out dark red. My other chicks dont look like that, maybe it's a breed thing and unrelated? I have hatched over a hundred chicks and never had this happen so I am kind of at a loss. I have had to warm up cold chicks that got seperated from their mama, and though they were stone cold-swear-they-were-dead they were good as new once they warmed up. Not this time so I wonder if something else is going on? I just dont get why they perked up when they got warm and then died anyway? Is there anything else I could have done? Thoughts?
