Hi. I really am sorry about how long this is but I want to get all the details so maybe someone can help. This year I hatched a batch of chickens out in an incubator. This is definatly NOT my first time hatching. But this is the first time I have had really scary problems with them These chicks are about 3-4 months old and are living outside at the moment. The other day we let them all out to eat bugs/grass etc, and one just starting flopping around (Like they do when they dust bathe) and about 5- 10 mins later..he was dead. We thought he ate a bee & got stung, as the bees were terrible. It was so sad to me...Not long after that happened, one of our chicks started getting sick. He stayed puffed up all the time, all the other chicks were running all over him, his crop was hard as a rock, and he couldnt walk well. We done research on the internet and found that he most likely had an impacted crop. And thats what it felt like. The internet said to mix a little olive oil and water together and give it to him. So thats what we did. Only moments later I could feel the food in his crop getting softer. But the next day, he died. I don't know if it was a good idea to give him the olive oil. But I would rather try and do somthing instead of watch him die. Today, we let them all out again to eat bugs/grass and another one started flopping around like the first one did. He also died. And 2 more of our 7 chicks that we have left, are getting sick. They are still exited when we come out to feed them. But they are Puffed up, not walking real well, and all 7 of the chicks have black/purple spots all over their feet. They seem to be a little better than they were but I'm still worried. Their mom and dad is very young..could that have some kind of link to all this? I really need help fast!
