I am new to this and rescued 3 hens and 5 chicks a few months. I believe they all came to us around the end of May. Everything was going great and then all of a sudden a week ago they started to die. At first we thought maybe a hawk got them. Though some were still there and a few we never found. We were able to bury 3 of them. There is still one alive. A week and a half ago I gave them half a watermelon that was a few days old. Could this have killed them if the watermelon was going bad? I miss my chickens Now I feel bad for the only one left and need to get her some friends soon. Although I am worried that she won't make it much longer either!
