dying chicks

I ordered 60 meat chicks from a well known hatchery and before they were a week old 13 died.  I called the hatchery and they sent 14 replacements (one was dead on arrival in the box).  This morning 3 of the new ones were not doing well.  I watched for a bit noticed they were seizing.   it wasn't long before they died.  Has anyone had this same kind of experience?  All my other birds are doing well now.  I've never had this happen in all my years raising chickens.See More

I’m so glad you found us, and I’m thrilled you’re already finding your way around the site.
