    no. They have all of a sudden just started walking in circles and fell and could not get up. Then they would not drink any water of eat. Now, they are having a hard time breathing.

    Have to checked to see if they have bloody poop, there has to be some symptoms leading up to this? Are they too hot? To help out we have to know that else is going on.

    Quote:We can't help if we do not know a few things... breed, feed, housing, symptoms. Symptoms would be really nice. As much information as you can conceivably give us.

    A friend of mine had something similar happen and she found that they were accidentally exposed to carbon dioxide. Could this be it?

    Yes. They do have bloody poop. They have mites, and a crusty vent. My chicken died!When I went out there, my other chickens were pecking at the dead chick and blood was all over the feathers!
