I just killed my lovely chicken... - Page 2

post #11 of 13
It very well could have been "Sudden Death Syndrome" especially if you were there and saw the bird flailing around on it's back, or you found it dead on it's back...

I had a female peafowl go into Sudden Death Syndrome immediately after I gave it a shot of antibiotics, same dosage I had given it for the previous two days... Gave here the shot, let her go, she took maybe one step then flipped over on her back and died in an instant...

I'm so sorry for your loss. We all love our chickens like any other beloved pet. It huts to lose one and it takes time to heal from such a preventable loss. You can't blame yourself. You were only trying to help her. hugs.gif
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
