I'm assuming there are any NUMBER of things this could be, but I'd like to hear at least a little bit of feedback that might give me an idea what might have happened... We found a dead chicken today, in the coop. Just sprawled out on the ground, legs behind her, neck tucked around. No injuries. We really don't have predators around here anyway. The other girls seem just fine, and as far as memory serves, this one was fine last time I saw her as well, this morning. I'm totally befuddled. Any ideas? She's about 14 months old and perfectly healthy, as far as we know. No changes in feed or ranging habits, EXCEPT one of the hens was carrying a dead mouse around yesterday. It was a buff, but we have two, and we're not sure which one had it. Could have been the dead one. So- could the mouse be diseased? Or could she possibly swallow something too big for her to be able to digest?
