    could there be something toxic in the coop or area that is killing them? I believe you said the one that escape is still alive and okay. That makes me think they are getting into something bad maybe weed killer, bug spray or something put out for rodents. If it was a disease the one that flew the coop would have died from it too. Does the feed have any mold on it, that can kill chickens.

    Could you spend some time watching them to see what they are eating or doing outside, as well as in the coop? If you could take a sick or dead bird to the vet, maybe he could discover what is killing them.
