    OK, I have had one death for no apparent reason, and I have one with spraddle legs, one with a wry neck I had to cull, and another one that also has some kind of neck problems.

    I cant get to town to get vitamins right now, so what can I do? I know they need it, the hens were not on breeder rations. (BAD me. i will never do that again!)

    I am giving them scrambled egss just now, any other ideas?

    make sure your temps are high enough. I have also used yogurt & cottage cheese. You can also get some sugar into their water or electrolytes...

    My temps arent high enough. You would think I've never done this before!! And I gave them eggs and yoghurt.
