Can anyone out there make sense of this?.... there were 3 hens (rhode island reds) ..1 was given to me at about 6 months old and the other 2 sisters stayed together about a mile away. About a year later the 2 sisters died within a few days of each other of unknown causes. I didn't know about it until mine got sick and died about 2 weeks later...unknown cause. IS there some genetic thing that could've caused all 3 to die so close in time span? None of the other chickens in either flock got sick. Could there be some psycic link connecting them??
