Woke up this morning to find that one of my broody's eggs had been broken and the embryo was dead under her. It looks like it only had about a day or two before hatching, so I was bummed. Then happy when I discovered that another had hatched successfully! Cute little puff of chick. Then bummed again as I let the flocks out of the coops, only to discover one of my 4 month old Rhode Island Reds dead on the coop floor. Stretched out and stiff as a board. No bites that I could find, no blood, no missing parts. Neck didn't even feel broken. Just dead. Any ideas of what I'm dealing with? New baby, YAY! Dead teenager, bummer!
