    Hi. Just today, this minute. I found one dead chick and 6 more with red bloody looking butts. Rearends seem to be prolapsing outwards. What is going on?

    Thanks

    They are sick. may have cocci.

    Get them antibiotics in their water ASAP.

    That's may be. But the type of meds is important. If you don't have a diagnosis, then how can you treat with drugs?
