Cause of Death (General Discussion)

by BennieAndTheJets, Tuesday, July 18, 2017, 17:23 (149 days ago) @ Barbara-NH

I let the vet run a pathology report on him after necropsy (I still buried him later that day) because I have other birds that seem poorly and it may help them

They found a diagnosis of pulmonary anthracnosis (black lung disease?) due to poor air quality, smoke, or exhaust fumes

We have neither smoke or exhaust near the coop in significant quantities, from what I can tell – so I asked about the possibility of DE dust causing this and the vet will contact the pathologist to get an answer to that
