Birds dieing.. Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have had this issue with my birds developing tumors on their eyes and going blind. Anyone know what this is caused by? How do I prevent other birds from developing this illness? Anyway I can sanitize to get rid of it?

Do you have photos of the chicks, tumors and setup?

More information would be helpful.

How old are they?

What type of food do you use?

Have they been vaccinated?

Any other symptoms, sneezing, wheezing, lethargy, etc.?

What does their poop look like?

Under a year old. This issue started after I bought some barred rock day old chick's and black sex links. Had a few of the barred rock die due to being blind from the eyes puffing up. They were also wheezing I believe. I'm thinking it's marek's but not sure. The black sex links didn't really die as much.

Without photos it is hard to even come up with many ideas.

 

Here's a link to get you started:
