I sure could use some help. Last Thursday night my husband found one of our seven month Cocku Maran's dead when he went to feed in the evening. No visible sign of cause. We had hoped it was just a fluke. Tonight he found one dead and another who he believes will not make it through the night. Here is what information I have: 1. Breed: Cocku Maran Age: 7 months unsure of weight - but appears to be average sized healthy hen 3. No sign of trauma. Did notice some blood smears on some of the eggs collected the last few days. Thought it was due to the very cold tempatures 5. All the birds seem to be eating and drinking like normal. Our girls eat a mixture of scratch and Laymor with grit and oyster shell available. 6. Poop has looked normal. Husband did say that the hen who died tonight had a red bottom and her feathers appeared wet. 7. No treatment so far 8. I want to protect the rest of the flock. Since the first bird died a week ago and all the other birds appears well other than cleaning up the old liter and putting in new nothing else has been done. Plan to take the bird who is sick or deceased at this point to the vet if they can see us tomorrow. 10. Currently using sawdust bedding. Birds are staying in a large stall with ample ventilation. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. We have loving raised these hens and enjoy their fresh eggs. We just hate losing any one of the.
