what happened?

post #1 of 3

well, today my worst dream came true. my most favorite of all chickens has past away. but my question is how? 3 days ago i noticed she was acting different and her comb was turning purple, so i just thought she was cold, so the next day i noticed she was totally different, she would stay still for a and sleep for a bit then get up and go on with her day, and last night before bed-time she was not moving anywhere i had to put her in the coop and in the nest box, and i was really worried, then the next morning i went out and found her on the coop floor... what happened to her? 

 

about her: lucy was a black bantam cochin,she was almost 2 years old she eats layer feed mixed with scratch, grit, oyster shell, and a feather fixer. for a snack we give them bread, mealworms and if i find bugs i give it to them, before she died her comb and wattles were purple but they felt normal.

Sorry for the loss. Check the rest of the flock and be vigilant in watching for signs of sickness. Many poultry diseases are contagious and birds are very good ay hiding illness until it is too late to help them.
