    I have had 2 hens dies with similar symptoms as shown below.

    Pale comb, runny poo then they die.

    I have them Apple Cider Vinegar a few days ago but was out of town so just today gave them Wazine in their water

    Any ideas?

    Sorry for your loss.
    Can you take a fecal sample to the vet to have tested?
    They should be able to help determine whether it is worms or possible a bacterial infection.
    Any other symptoms besides pale comb - not eating, not laying, lethargic, etc?

    If you have another one pass in the mean time, I do recommend that you send one for necropsy to help identify what is the cause, so hopefully it can be treated.

    She is eating & drinking. I am not sure if she is laying as I have 50 hen and it is hard to see who is laying or not.
    Thank you for the links.
    I am going to see about getting the poop tested.
