@Fairyloop5 no one is going to force you to cull your chickens, but you must understand that sometimes that’s the only option besides watching them die a painful death. No one likes to euthanize animals here, we just want what’s best for them. That being said, is there any way you can find a vet who will see chickens to run some tests to figure out what’s going on? Or, can you save one of their bodies and send it off to a lab so they can do a necropsy? I’m sorry this is happening to your flock. In the meantime, you’re going to have to pause your plans for showing in 4H until you can rule out infectious diseases. It would be very sad and irresponsible to spread illness to anyone else’s flocks.
