    Today we found one of our cornish crosses dead in the brooder. We checked him for injuries or signs of sick and saw none. A couple of hours before we saw this guy, they were all running around, seemingly happily. He was laying on his stomach, and I couldn't see any reason why he may have died, on the outside. Any ideas?
     
  2. It happens. There exists a rate of attrition that sometimes we have to see happen even though we don't want to.

    Best of wishes on the rest of those great meaties.
