Found my second hen dead on the floor of the coop this morning. The first one was a month ago. The first one had been acting a bit under the weather but this one showed no signs at all. Both were about 9 months old. The first a Light Brahma, this last one a sweet Cochin. I have 13 other hens and 1 rooster and everyone else seems normal. Nothing has changed lately. Same food etc. I have had decreased egg production this last month due to some of them molting but this Cochin didn't appear to be molting. One odd thing is that she never really did lay eggs. She laid a teeny tiny round one on Dec 1st. Smaller than a small walnut. I think that this was her first. And then her second was about a month later, also very tiny. Never saw another one after that. So maybe she had something wrong with her. It just makes me wonder was it just a coincidence to have my only 2 deaths so far be in the same month? Or is it just normal for chickens to die for no apparent reason?
