    Hello!

    Went out this morning to find one chicken outside in a corner and shes super weak(americana). Eyes closed, breathing slow, wont stand or eat. Found another in the coop on her side really bad shape(golden comet). Twitching head, eyes closed, looks really bad. I think they ate something bad, been doing a bunch of reading here n other sites. Reading up on chicken diseases it sounds like botulism, but I dunno what they ate bad. its warm n dry here in california, no dead animals around. The golden comet is super bad, twitching like in a coma, when I open the eye the pupil is pulsing quick w the heartbeat its fast. The americana will open her eyes if startled, then droops away again but she sits normal whereas comet just falls right over. Americana has pooped twice, nasty green/white marbled mess. I got some vitamin water down their throats.

    Now what do I do?
