    Ok so I have had about 4 birds of all ages and sizes just die this last week... All had found in their crops , not skinny, no mites, no lice, they have all had fresh food , fresh water and tons of scraps and veggies.. They have all been acting normal , poo normal, roosting, eating and laying... so i'm kinda baffled here.. I hate to use any kind of antibiotics but I am ready to now... Any ideas ?????

    Wow ~ sorry to hear that! [​IMG]

    I don't know what the problem is , but if (and I hope not) you do lose another bird you could contact your State and try to get a necropsy done on it to find the problem. You may have a disease in your flock. I'm not sure who you contact, but there are others on here who have had it done at little or no cost.
