I bought 4 chickens from a guy at the flee market a month ago. 2 of them got sick and died. I bought 6 more from the same guy and after 3 days half of them are doing the same thing. Gasping for air, runny nose sleeping all day. My wife thinks they may be something in that area. But I think if it were they all would get sick. I think this guy sells bad chickens!!!! The 6 I just bought he didn't even know what half of them were. He says he buys them at sales. So he must buy these chickens form different people then throws them all together. It's a wonder I'm having problems. I don't know how many times I can keep going through this. Chicken raising has been a nightmare so far. I should be patient and just but the chicks from a hatchery. Then at least I know what I got. Well gave these 3 wormer today. See if this helps. I guess what I am asking is you think it's just the chickens from this guy??
