The chick I bought Sat at about 2:15 pm, about 5 weeks old, who became ill that very night with bloody poop, is not looking long for this world. I realize it varies from person to person and without some sort of written health guarantee I might just up up the creek without a paddle on this little one should she pass, but is there a general 'protocol' for replacing chicks that die like this within a certain time period? Would I be waaay out of line to call the sellers and ask if they might replace her, if she indeed dies within the next few hours? Is that something -most- chicken folks would happily do, replace a bird who dies within 48 or 72 hours or so, or is that bizarre and unheard of? The other 4 chickies in the flock, 2 from the same seller, different breeds, all seem happy and healthy- all on medicated food, all with meds in water. Just my poor little EE is failing rapidly....I did call them first thing his morning alert them to the situation and ask for advice, haven't heard back , but of course it's a big Holiday! Being a dog breeder I am all in the mindset of replacement/refund, but of course pups aren't chicks!
