HI. I have just found my first dead hen. Bit sad really as i had seen no signs of sickness. I have or should i say had three hens, now two, in a house appropriate to their number in my garden. I let them freely walk around the garden lawn most days for a few hours and they have always appeared very contented. I found this one dead in the egg laying section. There was no blood or bile. When i turned it upside down i could see an egg half out. WOuld an oversized egg have killed her or perhaps the trauma attached. As is say they all appeared healthy and were walking about and eating and drinking with no noticeable problems. What do you think was the cause? I would appreciate your help as i wouldn't like to think i missed a signal somewhere though as i say they all appeared healthy. The other two seem fine and normal.
