    I went out yesterday morning and all of my banties were fine then when i went to feed them yesterday evening my precious SDW hen was dead in her nest box w/ the 5 eggs that were there yesterday morning the roo was fine and all of the rest of the banties in the divided cage were fine and still are ok this morning. She looked really purple like she had sufficated and her head was drawn down. Could somebody tell me what could have happened to her.

    I can't offer any ideas, I just wanted to say sorry for your loss.

    Did you look in her throat to see if she had perhaps choked on something?
