    Ok a couple weeks ago something went after our barred rock hen. For a while she was doing great but now she is huddled in a corner and sleeps most of the time and I don't know what is wrong with her. We also had a duck and 2 bantam chickens suffer the same symptoms and we couldn't revive them. Does anyone know whats going on?

    I sure have no idea but it doesn't sound predator related. What other symptoms are you seeing?

    Check for lice and mites. They can really take a lot out of a chicken.

    I checked my bared rock today and she is just sleeping and she won't drink any water so I just started putting some in a droper and giving to her that but she is really dehydrated but that is all the symtoms she is showing and now my belgan quail is weezing.

    Im am just getting overwhelmed with all the sick birds.
