    Ive had a few baby chicks die and I have another one with similar symptoms. Do they sound familiar to anyone? I had an adult chicken act like this in the spring time and she died from severe bacterial infection.

    - lots of weight loss.
    - low energy can't run or get into chicken house
    - stumbles
    - no runny nose, no goopy eyes or sneezing.

    then they die. Anyone know what these symptoms sound like?
