It's morning here in California and the second of my 7 chickens may die. I am an animal lover. And it breaks my heart. I don't know the first thing about chickens aside from protein for molting. All the 6 chickens I have now are different ages. The oldest two both Rhode Island reds don't seem to have anything wrong yet.....they were both rescued from hungry pit bulls about 6 months ago. Then I bought from the feed store two more babies that have grown up well. About 3 or four months ago I bought 3 more babies they are 1/2 grown and the ones that seem to be dieing. I got them at the swap meet. Found the first dead about two weeks ago with no warning. Now one is walking really wierd she slowly picks up her feet while walking kinda hesitantly and she don't seem to want to extend her neck out. But she's eating and drinking. A neighbor has a coop next to mine. I noticed a dead chicken in there a few days ago that is still there. They never check on rhem and I actually feed them through the fence and water them. Can take out the dead cause it's locked. Gosh I don't know what to do. Or what could be wrong. Now that I think about it the dieing actually started with two newborn chicks in the neighbors coop. They died about a week apart and there was only two. Please help me find answer. Could they have a disease should I put mine down?
