Ugent! I am raising different breed chicks off season NEED "EGGSPERT" FAST- I want to sell hens in the spring and I have some real expensive chicks coming soon- Some of my chicks are STILL dying every day, They all look healthy then, a few will look limp, cold and then "squashed flat" next morning about 1- 5 are dead every morning! I have done everything right...... I am raising new chicks from Ideal (I love the service!) in a large wire dog pen in the garage.....2 heat lamps, medicated feed, antibotics (corrid or sulmet) in the water as a preventive....( I am not losing the chicks INSIDE the garage) When chicks are 1 month old and almost all are feathered, I place them in a large rabbit hutch, (off of the ground 3 feet and has hardware cloth, too cold for snakes) lots of fresh clean hay, more medicated feed, antibotics, heavy plastic and 2 large 250 watt heat lamps......( this is the pen that 1-5 are dying every day and I do not know why...?) I was thinking to keep ALL ages of chicks in my garage and make a "circle" of round hardware cloth about 10 feet around and keep the chickens in the garage for another month? What else am I doing wrong? Please help. am getting Speckeled Sussex today and I just got in the last shipment of coo coo marins, welsummers and nacked necks HELP I do not want to lose my new chicks! hugs to anyone that can figure this out.
