    Went out to the coop this morning to check on the chickens. Make sure they still had feed, give fresh water, etc. Well when I went inside I saw my poor little Partridge Rock. She was just standing there. No energy. wouldn't eat or drink. Went to the garage to get a cat carrier. Went back to get her and when I picked her up she just started to convulse and then she was dead. What happened. Kind of confused:(

    No we only have 1 banty roo. Much to small for my regular size chickens but don't tell Rudy that. He thinks that he is the roo.

    pretty hard to say what happened..
    just not enough information...
    could she have fallen?
    was she near a nest box?
    any odd droppings?

    sorry for the loss of your hen.
