    So I have 3 chickens, 2BOs and 1 RIR that live with my 3 pygmy goats. The other day I went out to feed them and on of the BOs was just dead. She was just lying on the ground. I couldn't see anything wrong with her, no attack marks, blood, nothing. She had been healthy and laying regularly. Any ideas on what it could have been?

    [​IMG] Sorry for the circumstances. Sometimes apparently healthy chickens just die. In many instances sudden death is the result of a heart attack.
