I have a few birds silkies &2 polish that came down with a mystery illness. ( Losing weight, weak and then die)I had to have one put down and a necropsy done to see iff that would give an idea what's going on. I'm waiting on results.:It was only a few birds in one pen, a few but not the others.. Others improved with worming but the few did not. My full sized birds are all fine, and are housed seperate. My sister used to work on a poultry farm up north and said it is possible they could take all my birds depending on what they find. I do have a lot of pet chickens aprox 30 adults and a lot of chicks, 6 peafowl, 2 turkey and 2 emu as far as birds go. My neighbor has chickens also, they are not sick and are right on the other side of the fence. Can they take all my birds? I'm not a breeder etc, they are pets and cheap manure spreaders. I don't want my birds to be put down needlessly!
