    My Egyptian fayoumi had been acting a bit off for a couple days, and her comb has been flopped over for about a week, but she had been eating and drinking and free ranging pretty normally. This morning she was dead in the nesting box. She was almost 6 months old and had never laid. Should I be worried about the rest of the flock, or does this just happen sometimes?

    It can happen sometimes there are so many conditions that it could be that it will happen normally. My suggestion would be to clean/gut out the coop where she lived just to keep it clean.
