Hi everyone just talking chick trouble. In aug got 30 buff orpingtons were in the house until they were 4 weeks old then put them out side with light. When i got them threw the mail 1 of the chicks head was up side down, called company that i got them from and they said it some time happens and that some times they come out of it. So 2 days go by and it dies, then two more die.Then all is well did not lose any more. Moved them outside. Then had one that had a little blood in poo,I have been giving them starter with meds. I have been comming on and talking here about my troubles. I clean there pin every day had to give meds for coccidiosis Went out yesterday and one of the chicks is opening and closing its mouth like it cant breath good, So i think is respirtory problem. I have been raising chicken for about 6 years now and i have never had so many problems . I have never had any. I dont know if getting just one breed of chicken that has caused all the problems, all my other ones were everything but the kitchen sink. I want to get some white rocks and black australorps to. I dont know if i should or not????? Am now giving chicks oxytetracycline. I do not have a vet that does chicken here got meds from my feed store. I talk to her about what is going on and she said give them this.I have never had a baby chick even die before.One trouble i have forgot was the waddling chicken.
