Hello. I came upon this site while trying to find an answer to why my chicken suddenly died. This is the second flock I have had. My first flock was nearly decimated by foxes last year. A friend took the remaining few chickens and I started again this spring with 12 Bardrocks from a farmer who needed to thin his flock because they could not sell all of the eggs they produced. They were about a year old at the time and have been doing well with me for about4 months now. I would like some input as to why one of the hens suddenly died yesterday. She seemed healthy but always acted a little strange.
