    Chicks about 3-6 weeks old, intestines coming out right before death or right after.
    Other symptoms are diarrhea caking up below vent, and chicks pecking at it.
    I looked up infectious bursal disease and it sounds just like it, but there is no mention of
    intestines coming out. I'm thinking the whole gang will get wiped out cause I lose
    a couple here and a couple there for the last 2 weeks.

    Theres only one thread on all of byc with similar problems. That means this must be REALLY rare.

    ON BYC They Said things such as yeast infections,overcrowding. I like your idea better, and would treat for it.

    Heres the thread anyways, maybe it will help some.
