I have made a couple of post concerning a Buff that is not eating /drinking and poops dark green poo. She is still in the "hospital" (guest bath) holding her own but I must get some food down her today. Yesterday I noticed a J.G. just sitting. I'll skip the details but by 9:00 p.m. he was dead. I keep the pens very clean, change water 2-3 times a day. BUT (there is always a but) I have had a HORRIBLE problem with flys. I have NEVER seen flys this bad in my life. I have 5 fly strips out ~ have to change every 2 days and 2 traps. From what I have researched I think there may be a different illness with each chicken. Is it possible that drop dead J.G. contracted botulism from the flys and Buffie may have coccidisos ~ which I can't quite believe since she has (mostly) been on medicated feed. I started treating her for coccidisos last night. I really think she has a bad intestinal track infection. There is NO blood in her stool just dark green watery poo. ANY ideas or feed back would be GREATLY appreciated. I don't want to lose Little Pumpkin. I'm short on hens already. Feed back PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, THANKS, THANKS, THANKS. P.S. One of the things I read about botulism is the feathers fall out easly. J.G.'s were. Buffies not.
