    when you post on emergencies thread, give symptoms in full detail, the more info, the more likely someone will know a treatment.

    I've gone through something similar...... I had one die (pecked to death after treatment), and one other die as well...... The other I still don't know what happened. Something neurological I think.

    Recently I had one start wheezing and having discharge, but I gave her some antibiotics and she seems all better now. She was setting but I am working on breaking her of that since she was sick. Will let her try again in Spring.

    Good luck! BYC Has been great for answering questions. I use the search function too and that is very helpful.
