And again to avoid excess mortality you’ll try not to allow water to wet their brooding room because that may cause them to have COCCIDIOSIS and COCCIDIOSIS has the potential of killing a bunch of birds at a spot so do all you can to make sure their brooding room is not wet.
Perhaps if you have too much mortality you’re not going to get your money back so do all you can to take a good care of them.
