We have over 20 sick right now. Some are very bad and they need to be hand fed and given water. Any advice helps.
If you can, because the majority are sick, remove the ones that don't seem to be sick yet.
Call your local vet with a list of all the symptoms and see what they sugest, may have medication for whatever they think it may be. If it's a serious illness/disease it's important to let them know anyway incase it's an airborn avian virus.
You can always take one of the dead chickens to them if fresh to see if u can get a diagnosis to prober treat it. If that's too expensive may be best to put them down if spreading rapidly and their dying off... I'm so sorry that sounds terrible!
Try cleaning out the whole cage & disposing of the infected bedding properly. Just my advise, haven't had a contagious virus that God but wishing you best of luck! Hope you find so thing on here!
