    Since this has only affected my meat birds, I figured I would try here. Searches in the Disease section kept efering those asking back here anyway.

    My 12 Cornish Rocks are almost 4 weeks old. I lost 1 in teh first few days, a second around the two week mark. Listlest/lathargic, white discharge from vent.

    For the past few days, a limping meatie started showing signs of the white discharge with no normal droppings. I culled it his morning. I move the tractor several times a day, and i will be disinfecting waters and feeders etc in a few minutes.

    Any suggestions, warnings or things I should watch for beyond others acting similiar? the rest seem to be healthy, free range fine etc.

    Did you open one up? Yellow fluid inside? Purplish comb on the listless one?
