Chickens randomly dying

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, this is my first time posting on this site. I'm somewhat new to chickens and need some guidance. I've had 3 English orpingtons randomly died this week. It was unusually wet and rainy this week I'm wondering if they had gotten sick. They have shelter but don't use it during rain. I'm wondering if it's something else if I should do some preventative antibiotic treatments for the whole flock. If I need to look somewhere else on this site for some answers let me know. Thanks in advance. I'm posting some pictures and I don't see any crust around the eyes. Somebody more trained May pick up something I haven't. I've had these birds for over a year with no health issues.

Hi and welcome to BYC - sorry about your losses. The best place to post your question is the ER forum - 

http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures - I'm sure the experience ER members will be able to lend a hand.
 
Good luck

Doesn't seem to let me upload from my phone. If I need to post to the ER forum I will do that. Thanks.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
