I have golden comets, 9 mos old. About a month ago, the flock pecked one of the hens to death in the space of a couple of hours - all was fine in the am, went out later to check water, hen almost dead in the corner. I went right to the forum, did what y'all suggested (more protein, things to keep them busy, etc.), and all has been well since then, no more picking. Now, today everything was fine, then after we walked the dogs this afternoon, I went to make sure their water was still liquid and give them their evening peanuts and sunflower seeds - and there was a hen dead in the run. She wasn't pecked bloody, no apparent injury, just dead. Nobody has been sick, everyone was acting normal this morning - WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED??? Why would a hen just keel over and die? Any ideas would be most appreciated. I don't want to lose any more. BTW, I do have two roos (not on purpose!) Could one of them have killed her inadvertently, trying to mate or something? One of them did not much like it when I took her out, though he didn't challenge me, he did think about it. Please help!
