    I have had 2 sick chicks (what seemed to be forever)...they finally died today. I did everything I could...antibiotics, vitamins, electrolytes...and was contemplating culling them....thank the good Lord that He intervened before I had to.

    I hated to lose them, but poor little things were SO sick, SO miserable....

    One thing is for certain, the kids gave them a first class funeral!

    You should necropsy them...(if it wouldn't bother you too much).

    Quote:wouldn't bother me a bit, but I wouldn't know what to look for...besides the kids buried them...so I'm going to chalk this up to God's will.

    Next mysterious death...I'll be knocking on your door! [​IMG]
