I'm sorry for the loss of your chicken. See if someone over on the emergencies/diseases forum can provide some answers for what happened:

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

Was the chick showing any symptoms before it died?

sounds like it could possibly be Coccidosis. Which can be successfully treated with Amprolium if caught in time. symptoms include excessive sleepiness, lethergic behavior, bloody stool may or may not be present.I hope this helps. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Thanks for the help. I gave them. Worms yesterday.today then I will buy them Amprolium for next 3 days. I have 150 birds, so sometimes observation for signs before death becomes difficult for me, apart from checking stools and behaviours, which because difficult when bringing them feed. They all scrumble and make a lot of noise in a choir-like. I will be close with them from today and update accordingly.
