Been a rough couple of days. Found one today faceplanted next to the water dish, soaked and dead as a doornail. We’re using the recommended chick waterers and everything… pretty sure it fell asleep with its head in the water.

Later on, noticed one very listless and wobbly when we did get it to move, and it produced white, runny poop. Decided to cull as well.

This is horrible. Wish I knew if I’m doing something wrong, or if this just happens. I’m following the instructions from the hatchery. Suspect it’s just the infamous Cornish fragility, but even so. It’s hard on the spirit.
