    I have been raising chickens for a couple of years now. But this year has been a hard year on my flock. I have had fox problems. Now my chickens keep dying. They are not showing symptoms of being sick. They are eating well, lots of water, nice coop to live in, big run. I have no idea why they just keep dropping off. I let them out of the coop this morning and feed them all was good. Came home this afternoon both turkeys are dead in the run.........
    Any and all info, help, thoughts, ideas
    Thanks Ramona

    Take the bodies to have an necropsy done on them. call your county extension office and find out where you can have it done at for little or no charge.
