so out of having 27 chickens in my entire experience, 8 have died of predators or unknown cause (2 predator, 6 unknown death) in 2 years. I found her dead under the roosts. Her neck seemed arched and limp. Her face was pale when it was bright red just yesterday. I didn't really pay attention to the details this morning and so didn't notice that one was missing (if she had died last night) because I was rushing to get to school. And the worst part is.. I went outside and the 11 new chicks (they are about 10 weeks) were sleeping on top of her.. under the roosts. I'm worried they could have contracted some disease. I'm really worried.
