A few weeks ago (around four) I got some ISA Brown's they were acting fine until one of them died, and another one. They have runny stool and i understand thats not normal for chickens, and right now we have another one that is turning skinny. They have a clean coup, plenty of fresh water and open feeding all the time, we throw scratch for them and we make sure they stay warm. We have treated them for coccidiosis and the treatment did not do much so we asked a vet what they think and they said possible worms, so we are treating them for worms. Oh and they get mealworms every now and then. Im am just scared to half to death for another chicken to die, I love and spoil my chickens and it breaks my heart. We are hoping for the best for these hens. we also have some older chickens that we are afraid will also get sick. Any advice at all, could it be lack of protein or to much stress because they do have a large coop and alot of sticks to climb up on.
