Sadly, I found one of our 23 week Orps dead this afternoon. We have two other Orps- same age and three Silkies about 2 years old. "Kitty" seemed a little light when i held her last week and looking back- I saw saw her sitting and it looked like she was tucking her neck in. Like she was cold. She hadn't started laying yet and her combs were not as bright red as her sisters'. Her body was stiff when i found her, but here was no obvious cause of death. She was in the henhouse. Any ideas?? Everyone else seems completely fine. Any precautions I should take?
