I did half wonder if it was just due to the fact that they're rescues. A few people had said that they tend to start dropping dead at 18 months. But it's weird that it all happened so quickly and with the same symptoms. They died on average one a week.

Are you going to the same supplier for the new chooks? Either a word with them to understand more about the history or a new supplier....

No chance! A friend has got me 5 bluebell chicks which she is keeping for me until they're old enough to go outside. There's no way I'd get rescue hens again!
