    The neck issue is a disease called Paratyphoid. You need to perform a necropsy on one so you know what's wrong with it. That would be the easiest thing to do in my opinion.

    You do know that you need to worm them again 10 days later to kill the cycle?What do you use to worm them?
    In N.H.,Tony.
