    I got my 26 chickens from mcmurray yesterday at 7 am. Since then, 3 have died of the same thing. They all had mucus dribbling out of their beacks, were clumbsy on their feet, and only would drink with my help.

    Hi, you'll get better luck with answers if you post this in Emergencies...

    I can't help you, but I'm sorry you're going through this. Good luck!

    Get each one to drink water. A little sugar water or water with pedialyte in it. Take them one at a time and dribble a bit on their beak. Be careful not to drown them. Then make sure they are all eating. Is your brooder temperature good?

    O yeah in the EMergencies section there are some experts over there to help
