    You will have to describe more. Was there feathers on the ground? Were they marked up? bite wounds and such?

    If they were not marked up at all I have no idea what could kill without bite wounds or anything. Someone else may know but I don't. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm sorry you are losing chickens, but that is nowhere near enough information to be able to help.

    There is a "sticky note" at the top of this section in the index. Please try to answer as many of the questions as you can, it will help a lot.

    Here's the link to the sticky:
