  1. Man that sucks ,do snakes do that ???need a camera,sorry brian ,you work so hard ,your friend โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ you have such patience ,,I donโ€™t know how you do it lol

  2. As hard as it is Brian,maybe it’s time to get tuff, with the workers,if you can’t follow the instructions to the letter and do the job right,then you don’t have a job, I’ve experienced the same with the home my Asawa and i built in bicol, nothing got done right till i got harder with what i wanted done and how,not how they think it should be done, because it’s always the short cut way,that costs you in the end,.

  3. I don’t know if you have weasels there, if not, you’re probably right about a rat. I have had several killed by rats, but they were always smaller than that chicken you showed. Sorry for the problems you are facing, I keep wishing you well My Friend, Take Care, Stay Safe, Be Well, Mac from Georgia

  4. Oh Brian Iโ€™m so sorry. Wish there was something I could do to help. Are they selling chicks ๐Ÿฅ in town somewhere?

  5. It might be an owl. Install a night vision camera and you’ll find out. Possibly big rats. Also the most common culprit is “Singarong” called locally. It’s called CIVET in English. These are very common in the Philippines but seldom seen. They are nocturnal.

  6. Ok Brian I just found out that your not suppose to put your chics outside untill there feathered. And keep them in a area big enough with temp. On one side higher than the other so they won’t roast to death gives them space to move out of the heat. Put sand in there space with rice hauls on top. It teaches the baby chics to dust bathe and the little pieces of grit them to grind there food… just a thought my friend, I know it’s hard to loose all them ๐Ÿ™ I think mostly it’s temperature related …. :/

  7. Bubble gum well kill rats
    Don’t use stick gum use like double bubble. It fills the belly but can not digest so they can’t eat and they starve to death. Only problem is they can die anywhere

  8. Very sad Brian,I think you need to start having staff meeting.
    That is a lot of chicken to loose,is it something in the ground or a ๐Ÿฆ ??
    Better hygiene perhaps.

  9. are you using insecticide on yur property for anything from to buggs and plants if you are and the buggs the chickens eat will kill the chickens you need to use some vinegar instead of bleach to clean the chicken waterers

  10. Sorry to hear the sad news regarding your chickens. It could be a dieases season to the chickens. Pray that everything is going to be fine soon.

  11. Sadly There is no treatment for Newcastle Disease however it is easily killed by disinfectants, fumigants and direct sunlight. Getting them off the ground and vaccine is what works. I worked for a Amish chicken farmer here in Ohio that had over a million chickens i know it is on a much bigger scale but what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

  12. It is hard to comment without it seeming like criticism or armchair quarterbacking. All I can do is look at it from an outside viewpoint and think what I would try given the circumstances as we see them and that is a weak option as none of us watching know what you have to cope with on a day to day basis. I am sorry it is going bad for you at the moment Brian and I hope you turn it around.

  13. Sorry for the discouraging situation. I think I would be having a very stern meeting with my workers. It’s out of control. I understand your situation, but it needs to be done. Maybe every morning huddle up with them all to remind them things are going to be done that right way or no job. Good luck my friend.

  14. Brian maybe there is a chicken sickness especially if rainy seasons . Thats happen one time im my place its terrible every morning a lot died . My sons use a socks to put the dead .

  15. Oh no .. that’s awful Brian ..those poor chicks .. the vaccine doesn’t seem to be working ? Or just not enough getting vaccinated ? I can tell you have a heavy heart right now . I’m so sorry . My nephew has 4 Case Farms chicken houses and there have been times he lost his whole flocks. Some didn’t even get fully grown. Others were and just got sick and were gone on no time …I hope things start going better for you .

  16. Hey Brian,congratulations on Charlie, you need to set some traps to catch whatever is killing the chickens,try putting lemon juice in water for the sick chickens,it helps,good luck God bless.

  17. after rain appear problem —–ask medic vet about viruses ,he spread fast when are humidiy into air after rain ——-rain and after evaporation water and appear more humidity and help virus spread if exist wind ,with more humidity viruses can stay more time suspension into air and wind transportation //////when you see a chicken with problem disease take of box for not spread virus at other chicken ,,,,,,

  18. tray this —-for chiken with problem 5stick match open and after fire put into water coffee cup and put for drink ,,,,,,maybe clorure pure ,sulfate pure kill virus and have efects for recovery superior vaccination ,,,,vaccine action on sistem imune …..after recovery sell ,are a sig that theri sistem imune not have resistence at virus zone ……virus have role in nature stop live chicken with problems big sistem imune and remain cicken with sistem imune good what development anticorps for disease . If function with stick match cut of loose chicken and after recovery SELL ,reasson take viruses second after rain and into time sistem imune becom low under low if birth with sistem imune not good …….are reason put more eggs ,of they survive 50-60% first days ,after 3months apeear selection virus and remain 50% of 100% ,,,,,,,,see chicken not feel good move into pens with problem disease for not spread virus at other chicken ,for chicken with disease create other pens but at distance ///////if function with stick match cut of loose manufacturies but after recovery sell ///////nature make selection natural but in sistem pens with eyes make selection ,,,,,,never keep a animal with disease near other animals for that day on day transfer virus through air and virus adapt at other aimal and with sistem imune good can kill virus ,example into air virus can exist 1hour but at a animal contamination virus exist non stop time and become vector for spread virus ///////with disease love are not good , In nature chicken with disease remain outside troops chicken good health for that when have disease he not walk for economic energies ,not eat for economic energies —-and put energies for fight with disease ,,,,,,,,,,,sulfate -clorure pure help sistem imune for that both substance kill microbs,viruses. If selection chicken with disease and move at distance cut of number die chicken …….similar industries loose number chicken //////if all chicken live on market low price but price up reason that 50% die and not have resistence at disease into time sistem imune //////who have resistence at disease chicken live and make eggs …….selection natural
