    Help, I am wondering if anyone has any ideas why my chickens could be dying. I found 5 in the coop this am. None of them look like they were attacked or injured. I have a few in the flock that look like they have molting, but other than that, they all look fine. Any ideas?

    Fowl cholera is mentioned in one of the diagnosis charts at bottom but I have never dealt with it and don't know how common it is.

    One thing to rule out is worms and mites/lice, as those can take a flock down and even kill them.
