    Morning everyone,
    I when out to feed the chickens this morning and I found Jr one of my sweet Dominique Roos dead. He was shaking a little yesterday but I thought nothing of it cause a gust of wind have just breezed in through the Chicken door that he was standing in front of. It look like he just died in his sleep early this morning. This is the second roo I have lost this year both were under a year old and come from the same person and both died in the night. Also I last week I relized that a hen that I got from the same person has a (gray) blind eye. Be side the blindness she acts normall could this be Marek's or am I over reacting?

    You might want to read about Marek's and fowl cholera in the veterinary Merck manual, available online. I am sure there are other possibilities as well.
