I had a broody chicken, 1 yr old, who kep hopping the fence to hide a clutch. I eventually found her cluch not far from my hose near the house. The eggs smelled horrible and I tossed and buried them. One popped open, white and curdled nastiness. A few days later we found her dead outside the run in a fenced area. No scratches or pulled feathers, just dead. That was last week. Today we found a second dead. Come to find out this is the broody. The other was her look alike sister. I looked closely and found nothing. All the other ladies look great. One has a peck on her eye so her lid looks white. She gets out for a few days and sleeps with my ducks and then goes back and they fight. I worry that two mysterious chicken dealths in the span of a week. I see no mites, no odd behavior, no sign of disease. Anybody have any ideas of what to look for. I plan on hanging with them all day tmrw to watch for signs.
