I'm new to all this, but wish to give my thoughts on the demise of my best friend Foghorn yesterday. It was a long day at work knowing he was there lying on the cold ground inside his chalet coop until I returned home. When I was able to investigate I treated the scene like "Ducky" would on NCIS. Foghorn was found intact so he was not a victim of predators. He was found directly below his normal roosting spot and with dirt in his beak. Taking into account his age (4 1/2) years. I have determined he died of natural causes. Probably a coronary attack and fell immediately onto the ground. Hopefully it was merciful death. He was gorgeous, and very gentle, a Fabio among hens. He wasn't just a chicken, he wasn't just my friend. He was the son I never had...

I know how it feels, I lost Tildy my RIR a couple months ago, she was one of my 2 original hens.
