Sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, unexplained deaths are not uncommon among poultry.  If others start to sicken, however, it would be wise to see a vet.  Welcome to Backyard chickens..

Hi Donna, :welcome

 

Sorry you lost one of your flock, unfortunately that happens sometimes. What breed(s) of chickens do you raise? Is that a Barred Plymouth Rock chick in your avatar? Glad you are enjoying the birds.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I have dominiques and black austalorps, two of each now, the one that died was a Dominique, she was pretty low on the totem pole but a sweet girl, no foul play suspected! With such a small flock I'm worried about trying to add one in eventually, I know it's not easy.
