I'm not sure what your problem is to be honest. The only two things that come to mind is maybe a bad jean has risen its ugly head. (due to the tiny one you mentioned)
I wonder... Do you show your chicks water when you put them in the brooder? I do the same with my quail and pheasants that people do with their chickens. THE DUNK. I will take and place their beaks into the water for a second or so and make SURE they know where the water is and how to drink. I know quail breeders that dont do this but it hasn't failed me yet and I have NEVER had a dehydration problem.
If you have raised chicks a number of times before and not had this issue then I would lean more towards the jean problem. How old are your breeders. Are they breeders that have breed successful for you in the past? These are some questions u need to concentrate on.
