G'day,
I have about 20 5 week old chickens that until yesterday looked healthy. This morning two of them were on their side and could not get up. This afternoon those 2 died also 1 more. Now 2/3 look a little sick. They are now on Grower Crumbles before that Chick Starter.
I would appreciate some help please to tell me is there is anything I can do.
Cheers Perry

G'day Bill,
I kept the chickens isolated. I lost 6 but the rest do not seem to have any problems. I returned them onto chick starter as it is medicated. I also added a little Condy's Crystals in their water. I will keep them separated until I know that there are no more problems.
Thank you very much for your help. I will keep that web site on file just in case I have another problem.
Cheers Perry
