In the Brooder
- Jun 16, 2013
One of our four chickens died last night. They were all hatched the same day, but while the others matured, her comb and wattle stayed small and pinkish. Then she was very withdrawn, wasn't eating or drinking much, and weighed a lot less than the other three. I'm thinking whatever she had was probably a birth defect, such as a heart problem, and that my other birds aren't in danger, but any thoughts on this?
