    My chickens are dying!
    I started noticing clumps of what looked like mud clumps on some of the chickens toes but after soaking it still wasn't coming off. Then I heard one weezing and 4 days later found her dead. They are getting very dosile and easy to catch which isnt normal for then. I have lost two more and have no idea what's going on. Can anyone help? I'm a new chicken mama and I dont want to lose anyone else.

    Welcome to BYC. Sounds as if they are living under wet or dirty conditions and are getting 'balls' of feces on their feet. Such conditions are conducive for coccidiosis infections. You might want to clean their living quarters and treat with a coccidiostat.
