    Hello everyone , I live in the heart of Texas. Have about 30 hens, some lay the others are on welfare. My brother in law is having a problem with his chickens, 1 was healthy and all of a sudden just laid down and with eyes closed for a week, would not eat or drink and died , today another one is doing the same thing, would like to know if anyone would know what might be wrong? I asked him if they could of got into some poison and he said no. They have just started to lay also.
     
  2. They have bucholism. It's when they drink stagment water.

    BTW welcome to BYC! Welcome aboard to the crazy chicken world!
