    Ive lost two chicks in two days the first one started limping and then woke up the next day very weak... she wouldnt eat or drink and could barely lift her head.. a few minutes later she had some sort of seizure and died. The second one i bought right after this one died and noticed it was weak when we got home so we started feeding her and showing her where the water is... she seemed to gain more energy after eating and drinking, but the next day she woke up even weaker and soon died.... What could have caused this?!? Could it be contagious to my other chicks?[​IMG][​IMG]
