    Im kinda new to the chicken farmin. This morning I noticed one of my Barred rocks not moving a whole lot minutes later I went back and she had died. What are some reasons she may have died from? She is was about two years old. All the rest of my chickens seem to be doing well. Any ideas?

    We need a lot more information.

    To start with (and we'll ask more) can you answer the questions from the 2nd sticky post in this forum - but answer them here into this thread?

    The more info we have, the more accurate we can be with your help.

    Hmm a hen? Was she eggbound? (did the egg get stuck in her vent?)

    Were there any previous symptoms that you can recall? There are so many things it could have been. You will not know without a necropsy. I had a perfectly healthy 1 year old die and found that (with necropsy) she had a ruptured tumor on her spleen and had bled internally. So sometimes ya just never know. So sorry this happened.
