So I have raised chickens with my mom for 7 years while I was young, and now that my husband and I bought a house, we got our own. I had NEVER experienced this before and I hope someone can help! So we got chicks to raise and it went great, my husband built a beautiful coop! While my sister watched our hens while on vacation a rqcoon attacked and killed them all ( they were around 3 months at this time) anyways, since I was so heartbroken, my husband suggested to find quick replacements of older hens so we could get eggs without starting from scratch. We found some on Craigslist and even drove over an hour to get that. I had a bad feeling about them when we got tothe farm, but I really wanted chickens again, so we bought them. He told us they were almost 4 mi the old, so I expected eggs quickly. We brought over a rooster from my moms and within a day he was sick. Sneezing and comb turning blue. We brought him inside and managed to nurse him back to health with antibiotics!! Then ons after another these new chickens died. First one had the same symptoms as thethe rbooster but never got better from medicine and died. The next too, had squinty eyes ( like this when we bought them) and ending up not eating and eventually dying. Their eyes were cloudy and running and they hardly opened then. Just stood around all day with they're eyes closed. The next slowly had droopy wings and eventually couldn't walk at all! She would flop around in the ground. Shed still eat well, but we eventually killed her because she was clearly in pain. Let me point out that NONE of these ever laid eggs. They were well over 6 months at this point and never laid and eggs and had no gobbles or combs develop, which is so odd. We had one die just suddenly in the night and 2 more from the "cold" like symptoms. One more had the paralysis and we had to kill her too!! When I thought I could take no more, one chicken FINALLY laid an egg ( the only hen who actually grew a comb). Strangely enough, she started brooding, right before winter (ho figure). She actually hatched the chick, but it was found dead the next morning . So I have one rooster (who is doing fine), one hen (who is still in her brooding stage, without a chick) and one more hen ( who has been showing signs of sickness. I have brought her in out of the cold, but think she'll be dead by morning) I don't know what to do?!? I have given them abgoos life, but maybe just bought all diseased chickens?;? Any response is appreciated! I apologize for the long post, I have just been through a lot!
