We currently have four flocks right now. Our big coop and run house our brown egg layers, our smaller coop and run house our colored layers and specialty birds. We also have a large batch of meat birds (about 70) and they have one smaller and younger barn yard mix cockerel roosting with them. These three coops share a wired wall and the Vikings are off by themselves. Four nights ago we lost our Buff Minorca, our white layer who was housed with our easter eggers, our lavender americauna breeding pair, and our naked neck. She stopped laying for about a week, and than stopped going into the coop and night. The first night it was supposed to get cold, I carried her in, and found her dead the next morning :'( Around the same time, we started noticing one of our meat birds acting strangely. It didn't seem to be growing like the others and started losing control of it's muscles. I sort of assumed it had "survived" a crushing. It stopped walking great and it's wing was going slack. It died last night. At first, since both birds didn't seem to have died of the same thing or in the same way, I thought it was just a bad coincidence. But today, a black austrolorp pullet, from the brown egg layer side has started acting like the meat bird. It's losing control of it's muscles, its wing is starting to go slack. Maybe just on one side? I'm not really sure. This is our first year with chickens, and my husband and I really went all in. Now I'm worried we could lose them all to maybe a disease or something we're doing that's really dumb and we just aren't aware of it :-( Is there anyone else out there who might know what's going on?
