I have a flock of SLW's, Rhode Island Reds, some random breed from Tractor Supply, and Ameraucana's. Out of this flock 5 of my SLW's out of 7, are all showing the same symptoms as the ones that cannot move their legs. The symptoms seem to be the same, no eggs, leg swelling, dragging that leg, then paralysis. The thing is, there is no signs of Merricks, and it's happening in all my SLW's, no other bird has gotten it.
Also, out of the 9 SLW flock, 3 have died already, and only 3 aren't paralyzed. And one more thing. They were separated. There were 3 (chicks) in one area, 1 (chick w/ broody hen) in another, and 5 (adults) in the other area.
Please help me, we don't know what to do... and our flock is running out. Thanks for any help.
