    Sorry [​IMG] Could have been a number of things. Worms, cocci, CRD, who knows. Ashland, Oregon? Looks like it's been a bit chilly (50s in the day?)... 5 weeks seems young, but maybe I'm wrong. Likely something that had been developing, or simply a failure to thrive. Are the rest of your birds alright?
