    and no obvious signs of ...well...anything. Checked for mites and lices, no sign. No sign of diarhea or trauma. Both were seemingly healthy the day before, eating and browsing for bugs. My husband reports that the crop of the one that died today felt like a bowl of 3hour old oatmeal (not sure what that means). They are feed purina pellets. They were wormed about 6 weeks ago. Kinda at a loss here and dont want to lose any more.

    Anybody have any advice as to what to look for?

    Heat? Moldy feed? Any type of poison they could have gotton into?
