On Sunday I noticed that one of my three week old chicks was gasping for air. I checked her vent and crop, but all seemed okay. I looked down her throat, but I could see nothing. She was not eating or drinking. I came inside to check all my chicken medical books and realized she must have a blockage, but she was so tiny I could see nothing in her throat. I sent her to sick chick bay and kept an eye on her. On Monday she was dead. This morning I went out to the brooder and checked on the remaining eleven chicks. I noticed that my little RIR was acting a little "off". She was a bit lethargic, but when I separated her she did eat and drink. She was not gasping for air, her crop and vent were fine. I left her in sick chick bay with a heat lamp. When I checked a few hours latter she was dead too. My kids are devastated. These are our pets. Since I am new to chickens, what am I doing wrong? I did put some electrolytes in the remaining chickens water. They have not been wormed, do I need to do that? They are eating chick feed along with chick corn and grit. Are these two incidents related. They had very different symptoms. I feel so guilty....what am I doing wrong? I feel like a bad chicken Mommy Help Please!!
