Good morning all. I have 2 juvenile toms, 3 juvenile hens, and 2 adult hens that free range my property along with a couple chicken roosters and hens. They all roost in a single pine tree on the property. Recently I built a large chicken coop as I have some chicks that will be ready to turn outside soon; well point of the story is I came out this morning to feed the horses and peaked in the coop and found one of the juvenile turkey hens dead on the coop floor. No signs of trauma on her, no signs of a struggle . . should I think about medicating the rest of the flock at this point? She was around 5 months old. Thanks for any thoughts.

Do a necropsy to see if you can determine the cause of death.

If help is needed @casportpony can assist.
