    My black orp is just sitting there, out in her run. I came home this morning and found her there. her face is discolored and black-ish red. She wont get up hardly, and isnt getting her treats. I tried to pick her up but she wouldnt want to move. Help!

    Oh, poor chicken.
    I'm so sorry about your loss.

    They get sick and die so fast!

    Do you have other chickens? You may want to keep an eye on them to make sure they are all ok.

    Take a look for lice or mites. It's that time of year, and it seems like everyone's getting them.

    You can have your state vet do a necropsy on her if you wish. They will tell you what she died of.
