How did the virus kill Dean's chicks, secondary infection?

I hope you don't mind me asking a few questions.


Where they peregrine chicks?
What age did they die?
Were they incubated and hatched by yourself?
Were you hand feeding?
Did you use pro-biotics or prime the gut in any way for the early feedings?

The chicks where gyr/saker peregrines.

They die when they where 8days old.

They were incubated and hatched by me.

Yes I was hand feeding them.

NO I didn't use pro-biotics or prime the gut in the early feeding.
