I lost three chickens to a disease that left them with no appetite and wheezing. In a matter of days, all three were dead. I finally found a vet that would run a fecal on chickens and it turns out mine have Capillary worms! It's a crop worm. The vet told me to treat with Safeguard (any other tips would be appreciated.

Wanted to mention this as I have seen a lot of people on here saying that they have chickens wheezing/rasping, not eating etc. So glad I got the fecal done!

I always appreciate it when chicken owner comes back and let's others know what their chickens symptoms were and what it turned out to be. Thanks
