I am completely heartbroken! My sweet Barred Rock girl was found dead today! I cut open her crop since nothing seemed to make sense..she was young. There was lots of hay in there....this can't be normal right? I think she must've suffocated. I'm upset with myself..I found her hiding last night behind her coop separate from her sister which isn't normal, her mouth was open. I just thought something must've spooked her like maybe one of the cats stressed her out or somethin. I locked them up in the coop as I do every night and thought she'd be fine. I'm so mad at myself for not looking into it further! anyway I have hay in the coop and they eat during the night..which I noticed the peas I gave them last night wasnt in her crop so it was from grazing yesterday, chicken scratch and hay. SO SAD..now my other girl is alone for the first time without her sister! Owners beware!!!
