since no one has said anything I'm going to answer this. IFA chicks do have a high mortality. I always buy 3 of what I want just in case. I also use the chick saver they sell and drip it intp their mouthes to make sure they get it. That seems to help a bunchSigh, does anyone know ifa's chick policy besides them not guaranteeing. Anything? I got discouraged looking for local breeder chicks so resorted to ifa. One polish died before midnight and I didn't even notice the " bantam cochin" he put in the box has bare legs.
