I came to check on my chickens and found one dead in the small kiddy pool I keep inside of the enclosed run for my two pekin Ducks who live with all my chickens and hAve since day one in the brooder. What happened? The water in the pool was so shallow that she should have stood in it without drowning. The chickens drink from it often.. My husband has it out for our drake and seems to think he killed her.. I think it's unlikely.. He chases my poullets to mate them but I've never seen him do anything to hurt them. Could he have knocked her in and tried to breed her in the water and drown her? Did she slip in and maybe get scared and get over excited and drown herself? Did she die of other reasons and someone drug her in ? I just want answers, this is my first flock and I want to prevent this from happening again. I have since removed the pond now heading into fall (we live in Michigan) . Any speculations would be helpful.
