Hi Dennis

There are several things these watery droppings could indicate.

Can you tell us if you have seen any unusual signs in the behavior of the birds? Are they eating, or are any having apparent difficulty with eating?

I'm so sorry to hear about your birds dying.

Have they been eating? Are they showing any signs of labered breathing? While they may have an underlying disease, birds that are sick will stop eating, and that will bring them down even more quickly, especially when they become dehydrated.

Have you done any prevention for your birds?...like treatment for canker, coccidiosis, worms? Have they been innoculated for Paratyphoid? Is your loft weather/wind/predator proofed and all openings larger then 1/4 inch closed? Do you have an rodents coming inside your loft?

You need to isolate the remaining sick birds and get them on heat. Follow these instructions first.
