Hi, I'm new to this forum. This morning we had what many around here consider the most intense thunderstorm we've been in. When I made it out to the coop around noon, two of my bantams (a 4-month-old rooster and a 2-year-old hen) were dead. I could find no marks or signs of struggle or illness. The young rooster had been introduced to the flock about 3 weeks ago and was roosting in a parrot cage in the coop with his sister. He was dead in the cage. The hen was dead on the ground below where she normally roosts for the night. The other 26 standard and bantam chickens in the flock all seem fine. Could the thunder have literally frightened them to death (heart attack?)? Or other suggestions? Thanks for any insight!
