    Well, I've put down about 3 birds this week, a hen that had crop stasis, and 2 pullets with nasty noses and VERY pale faces. I just put a barred rock down, she was nasty smelling and had a horrible pale face and was very weak and skinny. I figure I would save her the trouble, as we don't have a place to isolate, and didn't want her to be a carrier of CRD. But I do believe I might have to put a couple more down this week... sigh.... Anyone else having issues?

    If the nasty smell was about the head area, it's coryza.
