Symptoms: Ruffled up feathers (look like a ball) No appetite / will not drink Sit / Stand will not move Unsteady when forced to move White diarrhea Temp swings Death for one bird already (update: now 2 birds are dead) Anyone ever dealt with Infectious Bursal Disease (Gumboro)? It appears that it is what I'm dealing with in my flock. I lost one hen 2 days ago and another has taken up symptoms this morning. From what I can find supportive therapy is all that I can offer. It's viral. from: http://msucares.com/poultry/diseases/disviral.htm#ibd Birds have ruffled feathers, a slight tremor at onset of the disease, strained defecation, loss of appetite and are dehydrated. Affected birds have a tendency to sit and when forced to move, have an unsteady gait. Vent picking is common and a whitish diarrhea frequently develops. A sudden rise in body temperature is followed by a drop to subnormal temperature, prostration and death. Birds surviving the initial infection will recover rapidly within two weeks.
