Ok odviously not an emergency, I had a black Sexlink approx 2 years old, she went broody from time to time. This time she was sitting on some dummy eggs until some fertiles I had ordered arrive. Any back to storey, she's been broody 2 weeks, gets off next to eat and drink. Yesterday I find her dead in the feed pan in about 2 to 3 inches of water, we had some major thunderstorms yesterday about 4 inches of rain by the neighbors rain gauge. No marks on the hen, all other hens were fine, so no preditor as far as I can tell and she was well fed... Does it sound like she drowned? Now I need to find some broodys for the eggs I've ordered, need to rent a broody HAHA. Thanx for listening, G Found a large chicken snake in hen house this afternoon, he was quickly dispatched, but not before he ate all the frizzle eggs one of my Bantys was trying to hatch. Anyway snake may have been a contributing factore.
