1) What type of bird , age and weight. RIR JG Wells buffs anywhere from 17 weeks 2 two years 2) What is the behavior, exactly. about 2 weeks ago i started hearing a "wet sound" when they breath but only in the mornings. eating and drinking all stayed the same, but now i watch them sneeze and shake there heads some but no other odd behavior the two that have died went to bed with no symptoms acting okm then were dead the next morning. i held the one that died this morning trying to "help" and it would stretch its neck and almost like turn it backwords... she was my fav so needless to say this day has started off really really bad....and only gonna get worse when my boys find out 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? 2 weeks 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. none 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. we have arounf 50 birds and they drink an avg. of 5 gallons of water a day. they free range during the day and have layer pellets in there coop. i have started keeping them in the run yesterday to keep a closer eye on them while i try to figure this out 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. the poop was a yellow frothy runny color so i treated them with wizine 1 mo ago and then again 2 weeks after that...some of the poop is normal but some of it is still yuck! 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? i have just been watching them to see if they would get better on there oun but we lost on yesterday and another today so now im thinking that it is something that needs to be addressed. im just not sure what to do t this point. 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? there is no vet around here that treats chicks 10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use we use wood shavings along with DE the coops is cleaned weekly the floor is sand that is also cleaned out every 2 weeks and new clean sand is put in.. they dont spend very much time in the coop just to lay and sleep at night i also spray with seven the walls and floor and the nest boxes keeping the birds out of it untill it fries.
