How is your sick one doing?

 

Do you know if they were vaccinated for Marek's?

Have you checked his ears for any sign of  infection or lice/mites?

Could use better pic for the two at the bottom.The one on the top is a rooster\cockerel.

She's still not looking too good wyorp sad.png I went to the pharmacy this morning and bought vitamin b complex and some more vitamin e capsules, then got some grit for her I tried posting a video here but it didn't work il upload it to YouTube and post a link, as far I know none of the birds were vaccinated for anything they came from someone on gumtree which is like Craig's list I don't have his number anymore I wish I'd kept it, I will check its ears now too but the other chickens seem to be fine their bedding has DE sprinkled on it and their coop has a mite spray down every so often

Wry neck can take months to treat.But sometimes they just dont make it.

il take some now. That's sad he was the most friendly one, I have a feeling the rest are males too then they are exactly the same, how often do cockerels crow in a day of I brought them inside at night and let them crow in the morning then put them back outside would that work or do they crow through the day? I have neighbours very close by

A lot they will have a crow contest.More than likely they will kill each other....In most cases at least.Yours might get along fine but i would definitely get rid of them
