We have never had this problem last year, and it only just started early this spring when we were first hatching our first chicks of the year. They all seemed to do fine each time we raised them for the first week, but ended up hunched over with ruffled feathers, and they could not move very well. They were also extremely pale and hadn't been eating at all, but had easily been drinking water. I looked these symptoms up and I think it may be Coccidiosis, but I am not entirely sure if it is that or something else. We just had one of our last chicks die of it today. She was a RIR / RSL hen mix about 6 weeks old, and now we only have her brother left. Out of all 8 that we tried to hatch this year, only three made it. Two of them were black sex links who are a lot older now, probably five months or so, but the other young one we have now is 6 or 7 weeks old, and he acts a little sick. I don't really know how to cure it and I'm afraid that I won't be able to hatch any more baby chicks because of this disease going around. My neighbors' flocks are having no problems with it, so why am I? Please help! I can't provide any pictures because none of them have any symptoms of it right now, and we can't take her to the vet to get blood work done to figure out if that's what it was because it's so far away, and we don't have a local farm vet. We would have had 36 chickens now if it weren't for disease. Now we have 21, because some have died of old age, and a week ago one broke her jaw and had to be put down.
