    Hi one of my Bufforfington hens died today. She was lethargic and not eating. She was drinking lots of water. I picked her up to take her inside to isolate her and keep her warm. She started spitting up water like liquid and squirmed then died. I am new at this and wondered what happened. Will the whole flock get this??

    i would disinfect the coop, give them antibiotics in their water, check for bugs, and just see if any other chickens get it.
