    Re: all 3 kids died

    You need to have necropsies done on their bodies to determine why they died.
    There is no other way to find out.
    If they were being fed, but not pooping, chances are they had slow, sour or stopped crop.
    However, without a necropsy, that's only a guess
    This is something that a breeder who had done their research beforehand would have noticed at the first sign of distress ('not going poo') and would have rushed them to an emergency vet clinic at the first sign of trouble.

    Do not breed the parent birds again for at least another year, or better yet, never again.
    There's generally no good reason to breed your pets

    I don't .

    Perhaps a call to your avain vet, they would know!

    I am sorry about your chicks . The only way to really know is to have a necropsy, though it does sound like a crop thing .
