Hi, i have been reading posts but have never posted. I recently got pulletts two from a customer of mine black amarucans (sp?) He breeds them they are 4-5m old and two more from a lady who also breeds chickens i got those three weeks later. Anyways, a couple weeks went by everyone was friendly, happy and eatting then one day four wks ago i noticed one from the second breeder and one from the first were sick. So sick they wouldnt open eyes or barely eat and would fall face first from beung sick... I went on here read up on stuff talked to the second breeder and came up with tylan 50 and electrolytes in water. I did the tylan and forced water for three days and all seemed great. I waS out of commission i had surgery so my hubby ,whom is far less observant has been caring for them. Went out there two days ago and the same two are having issues again so it seems. The one will not open or use her right eye at all no feathers around the eye to the top of her head shes a polish and same with the other although she will open it..... i put tylan drops in the eyes and started tylan again. They seem to all scratch there heads a lot. Not sure if its mosquitos or something going on. Ive wanted chickens forever and this is slowly wearing me down. Have i reached the pt where i need to cull and start over or what. They all eat and drink just fine but why always sickly??? Thank u!
