    So I am new to raising meat chickens but have raised laying hens for some time. I have 32 Freedom Rangers that are 8 weeks old. This morning I discovered a hen in the corner of the coop that had passed away sometime during the night. She seemed healthy as far as I could tell as she didn't stick out from the flock. All the other birds seem to be doing just fine. Any idea what could have caused the death?

    Sorry for your loss.Without any previous symptoms its hard to tell what happened.I would contact you state necropsy lab for a necropsy thats really the only way to know what happened.
