    Quote:well, the hens next door may have brought over a sickness from their home.

    allowing other poultry on your premises is asking for a whole lotta trouble.

    what breed of chickens do you have? what other symptoms did you see?
    what did the body look like?

    Are they by chance getting wet, damp? Some times the little ones can get sick if they get chilled. What are you feeding them?
