Hey all, It's been two weeks since I lost my redstart hen. I feel so sad over it still. Her symptoms were only noticeable the night before she died. I assume this is because chickens hide their illnesses when they feel unwell. Anyway, the night before she died she was sleeping out in the pen with her head in her wings. Her comb was grayish and shriveled. She had stopped laying for about 6+ months. I want to know if her death was cause of old age or a disease. Has anyone had a similar problem? One of my other hens seems to have the same symptoms. Gray chin flaps, gray comb. This hen stayed in the house a lot so I put food and water in the egg box and she seemed to spring back to life. She's no longer lethargic or in the coop but her comb is still gray. I can't help but wonder if the dead hen would have survived had I done the same for her. Like I said before, I did not know she was sick until I went to put her away the night before she died. Yet, I still feel sad… like there was something maybe I could have done . When I opened the coop door the next morning, I found her peacefully on her side. I am glad she did not linger or suffer, but I still feel very upset over her passing. The ground was frozen under 1ft of snow, so she did not have a proper burial . Feeling devastated.
