I have been having a hard time with my hens and roosters. I guess I should start at the beginning and this will be long. I first got out flock of chickens with 2 black sex links and 4 white leghorns. They were all doing fine until a dog/fox got into our coop while the gate was open and killed my black sex links, 1 of my white leghorns and 1 went missing and never was found. As replacements I went out and bought 4 black authorlorpe (sp?) and 4 buff orphingtons. My husband quickly wanted some egg layers and bought 2 old hens at the flea market. We only kept those 2 weeks and sent them to a friends house in another county. Then we went to a breeded in our county to get some more. All of his hens looked very well kept, and spereated by breed. We got one rooster that had got into a fight with another one. He said his comb was messed up, but otherwise he was fine. These were barred rock. We also got a barred rock hen to go with the rooster. We also bought 2 RIR that night. They are doing great and laying eggs on a consistent basis. One of them holds his wings out a lot and breaths with his mouth open. I am just assumming because it's hot and humid out. The rooster did not last long before he died. Less than a week. We called the seller back and told him what happened. He then told us he wasn't acting quite right, but just thought it was because of the fight. He gave us the other BR rooster he had. Again, that one lasted about 2 weeks before he died. I told my husband that the last crow I heard out of him was hoarse sounding and 2 days before he died I didn't hear a crow at all. Then we had one of the baby BA killed by a black snake. My husband saw it at the end when it happened. Then 2 of the BA started getting water running eyes that got swollen shut within a day or 2. I am not up to 3 BA having the watery/swollen eyes. All of these are pulled out from the rest of the flock. One of the white leghorns that was left died too. He did not have the watery eyes, but rather just looked like he lost leg feeling. My mom also noticed that one of the BO died while we were on vacation. She said that she didn't notice anything wrong with her either. My SIL in the time being brought 2 cuckoo marans, and 4 easter eggers that all are doing fine right now. Then my grandma's friend had to get rid of his 3 roosters because of complaints. They were doing great at first. Now one looks kind of lazy looking and I just noticed when I went out to give them fresh water on had the starts of the watery eyes. I have been consistenly giving them antibiotics in their water since we called the vet to try to figure out what was going on. After the last chicken died we pressure washed and cleaned out the entire coop and put new bedding in. I just want to know what is causing this watery/swollen eyes. It appears to be itchy too because they keep scratching their eyes and rubbing them in their feathers. I have even thought about giving them a bath because they look so pitiful. The BA that have been secluded for awhile appear to be getting better, but their eyes are still watery looking and not quite normal.
