I have 3 yr old hens. This is the second one that just dropped dead on me. The first one was 2 weeks ago. This morning I found Helen dead on the coop floor. It looks like she died on the perch and then fell off. The other chickens didn't bother her body, and there were no marks or anything on it. Is this a disease problem I am looking at? There are no poultry vets around. The only thing I can do is if this happens again is to take the body to get a necropsy about 5 hrs away. Any advice? The chickens are freerangers, so they might have picked up something poisonous, although 3 yrs on the same island, and I doubt it. My biggest concern is that they got a disease from the wild fowl they come in contact with. Ducks, geese, birds, etc.
