Unknown Cause of Death..

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I don't know when it happened but i found one of my hens dead this morning.  I didn't see her running out like the rest when I came out to check on them this morning...so i went looking for her.. i saw her in the run like this..

 

what is going on ? She was fine when i saw her yesterday..

 

I'm in Arizona.. the temperature is dropping so is it because of the cold ?

 

or maybe something she ate ?

 

i don't know what to do...:/

 

I started out with a flock of 5 on April 2016 (my first flock).. and now i'm down to 4.. :(

Possibly (Sudden Death Syndrome).Her body can be sent to a local necropsy lab to diagnosis the reason.

They will go in and out of the coop/run on their own so i don't need to check on them that often..

 

She was fine when i saw her yesterday

 

 

this place might be closer

http://www.veterinarypathologyservice.com/

 

but they didn't list any price..

 

:/ i don't know if Arizona Humane Society can help with this or not since their price is more affordable compare to other vet places..
