    I need help, my chickens are starting to die only days apart. So the first day three of my chickens died, showing no problems the day prior. Just one day alive next dead. Then a day later another of my chickens died, same thing. Showing no problems prier to death. Then a few days ago one of my chickens did show problems, she was having problems with the reflexes in her feet. Like it took a while for her to figure out how to place them. Then I went out this morning and she was down, she couldn't get up whatsoever, when I tried to pick her up she wouldn't close her wing. It was completely tensed up. Does anyone know what's happening. Someone please help me!!!!

    Did it look like she was having some sort of a seizure?

    Any chance they were exposed chemically, given bad feed, etc?

    Would you be able to check them for parasites? Is it possible that there are red mites sucking their blood at night? I'm not to well informed when it comes to diseases but it could be a possibility. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :D

    So sorry for the loss of your birds. I hope you can stop the cause of the deaths and save the rest of your flock! Good luck!
