My favorite pullet, the buff laced polish, was perfectly fine yesterday. No runny nose, no diarrhea, active, happy, running all around. This morning I went out and she was face down in the corner, covered in bloody diarrhea. I brought her inside, called every feed store in a 100 mile radius looking for somewhere that has sulmet in stock. I finally found somewhere, about 45 minutes away. We were getting ready to walk out the door when I heard squawking and flapping. I'd put the pullet in our back room because flies were getting on her outside. She flopped and screamed and her head rolled back and forth, then she went stiff with a final peep. I'm so heart broken, this was my favorite bird. I have no idea how she died so fast when she was fine yesterday. This is the second pullet I've lost in two days, but yesterday's death came with a runny nose and lots of mucus. This one never had a runny nose at all. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, all my chickens are dropping dead. I've only had them for a week! I'm going to go out and buy the Sulmet powder right now and put it in their water. Do you think this was a death from cocci? Can it happen this fast? I saw bloody diarrhea yesterday morning when I moved the chicken tractor, but then last night when I moved it again there was nothing but well formed normal little poops, so I thought maybe the blood had come from the first pullet who died the night before. *sigh* By the way, my other sick chickens in a previous thread...I gave the ones with runny noses Tylan yesterday and their noses are already cleared up today! I'm still going to give them another dose today and tomorrow, correct? Is it alright to put Sulmet in their water still? I don't think I can handle any more chickie deaths, this is horrible.
