In the Brooder
- Jan 13, 2021
I can not figure out what is going on with our chickens. We have had two die and now a third one is acting the same way. They are fine the day before. on the morning of their death they get up and out of the coop but seem a little tired but still are active and moving around and then over a period of hours seem to get progressively more tired. Lay leaning to the side, close eyes more and more and then die by early afternoon. The first two it was really hot so we thought maybe it was heat related even though they got sick in mornings when it was still cooler. Today is warmer than the last few days but still only 85 with lots of shade. The first two deaths were 5 d apart and now this one it’s been 7 days. No two seem sick at the same time. No cough, no mucus, plenty of food and water available. Treated with corrid just in case after the second one died even though hadn’t noted diarrhea. I’m at a loss.
