I'm not sure if this is the right area to post as she's already passed.......but I came home yesterday to find my silver laced wyndotte deceased She was completely fine prior - no signs of illness. She was eating/drinking fine. Active and healthy looking. Stool normal I found her in one of the dustbathing holes. It looked like she had been dustbathing herself and passed. She was lying on her side in the hole. Stiff as a board when I found her. I checked her over as best as I could and could not see any signs of wounds or anything. I'm just worried about the rest of my flock now. She was only 2 years old. Is it common for birds from hatcheries to only live this long? I had lost her sister (same breed) but that was months ago. And she had been ill prior to passing. I had taken her to the vet and everything but lost her anyway The vet suspected she had eaten something that punctured her internally. I'm so sad to have lost my beautiful girls. I did a thorough clean out/disinfection of the coop. I wasn't sure what to do about the run area, but I did take a shovel and dig it all up and turn over the soil. Picked up all the poo as well. Washed/disinfected all the bowls. I only had two wyndottes (the rest of the flock is leghorns, buff orps and silkies)- could they have just been bred badly? I just find it odd that they are the only ones out of my flock that I have had issues with. Thanks for any insight you can provide.
