    Hi can anyone offer me any advic as my chickens are dropping one after another! The first one was sicknesssickness/diareea, the rest have just been diareea. I'm very thorough cleaning them every week and changing bedding etc! As soon as one shows the symptoms they are removed from the flock but I'm currently on my 4th poorly one and only have 2 left. The diareea ranges from a chalky yellow substance to a clearer yellow. Please help x

    Can you give us a little more information like age? What your set-up looks like? Feed? Etc.

    The chickens are between 1-3 years old 2 bluebells and 4 Warren's, currently I have 2 Warren's healthy, 1 possibly egg bound. 2 Bluebells have died and 1 Warren. I've had chickens for a few years and never experienced such a bad run! They are in a 12ft x 12ft pen and arelaxing fed layers pellets and corn, with a few treats odd meal worms, fresh pasta, rice etc. I just can't loose any more, just got back from sitting the Warren in water to try and relax her!
