    about a month ago one of my hens started acting weird, wasn't eating or drinking very much, not running to me like usual and seemed to not know what to do (she stopped sleeping on her perch and it seemed like she had to relearn how to eat, drink and peck). She was starting to get better, then a few days ago she was dead. A few days before she past away, her roommate started to show similar symptoms (little interest in food, doesn't seem as lively, not sleeping on perch and runny poop, loss of balance.) I am not sure what it could be! I am treating their water with this anti-biotic called tetracycline 250. it is all I have at the moment. Anyone have any idea what it could be and what I can do to try and save her? I don't want to lose my girl!
