Can someone please help us?! What could cause four hens death in one night?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What could cause 4 chickens death in one night? Last night they were all alive and well when I closed the chicken coop door, this morning when I woke there were four dead. They were on their backs with eyes open. This is very alarming as there seem to be no change in their environment, feed and water. Can anyone help or have information that could put my mind to rest?

Hi and welcome to BYC. I'm sorry for your loss. It would be best to post your question on the ER forum -

Good luck in finding out what may have been the cause.

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

That is very alarming and no doubt devastating! I am very sorry for your loss. Do you have any survivors?

When I first started on BYC, I had read several posts where chicken(s) were found on their backs, feet up - dead. Then people were calling it "Flip." I think it was like a heart attack or stroke.
