Hello, am hoping to get some help from someone who has experienced this before. 1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.)BBS bantam Ameraucaunas, almost 2 oz. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. They looked fine this morning, very chatty. When I just looked at them, there are about 8 dead, 4 almost dead, only 2 still up and seem fine. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? See above. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? Yes, death. Some are laying on their backs, some on sprawled out on their tummys. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. NO. 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. I have no idea, that's why I'm posting. Everything was great until just now. 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. I provided them water with electrolytes (Chick Saver) and Chick Starter feed. I dipped each of their beaks in the water 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. I have them on paper towels over shavings, some poop looks normal, but some is watery. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Gave water with a dropper to the healthy ones 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Treat it my self. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use: I have them on paper towels over shavings. What can this be? The waterer was brand new and washed and dried it with DAWN. The brooder is also new washed and dried it as well. Heat has been constant at 95 degrees. I bought these chicks on a BYC auction from a reputable breeder. Another person bought the same eggs and recieved them the same day as I did, so I will contact them to see how their chicks are doing!
