Hi everyone! I've been frequenting backyard chickens for over a year now which is when I first got two chicks. I had hoped to get a couple hens to lay eggs and have as pets. Months later I discovered I had been raising two roosters! I had them both living together up until a month ago. I rehomed one to a friend at work. I gave her my white Silkie rooster who was the aggressive one. I kept the Polish rooster whom I had grown quite fond of. I had named him Tilly before I knew he was make but kept the name because Tilly just fit him. So one week ago I finally found a hen to bring home to accompany Tilly. She is a 12 month old cinnamon queen. I brought her home April 9. Everything has seemingly gone well. Hattie my new hen started laying three days after she came home and Tilly was his normal goofy rooster self. Last night and this am we received quite a bit of rain. I went outside in the afternoon to check on the two of them. Hattie was walking around normal but I didn't see Tilly. I panicked a but and went to the cool but it was empty. I kept looking around thinking maybe he somehow escaped his enclosed area. However I found my sweet Tilly dead out in his yard. I am so upset over this. I picked him up and looked him over and didn't see any signs of trauma. What could have happened?? I keep obsessing over the thought my hen Hattie had something to do with his death- like she was carrying something contagious??? What do you all think?? I'm so sad and upset over Tilly's sudden death. My best friend even came over and we buried him and had a little funeral for him. I just am concerned I could have done something to prevent this. Help!
