Hi, We're newer to chickens in St. Louis. We did research before starting and got four 8-week old chickens from Fenton Feed in early September 2015. (2) chickens were Rhode Island Reds (RIR) and 1 was a Orpington and one was a Barred Rock. Within a month, we put one RIR chicken down for a possible disease - walking on foot upside down. In late October, we put a second RIR chicken down for a growth in its head and eye disforming. (previously posted an image about this) We bought 2 more RIRs from Fenton Feed and added them to the brood and they all did well together. One day in mid- December we noticed one RIR was moving slower and not eating much. We found her stiff dead on Christmas morning. Now, this week, we noticed our last RIR is limping and sitting more. She doesn't run around the yard the way she used to and the others continue to. We thought Reds were a good breed that might be healthier than others. We've cleaned out our coop a couple times after each disease was found to see if something was setting in the coop. Any thoughts or help? Anyone in St. Louis purchase chickens from Fenton Feed? We've read that there will be dead/ disease among chickens and you should maybe purchase more chicks than you want but buying them all 8+ weeks old and only having problems with the Reds is suspicious to us. Thanks in advance!
