What should I do ???She is in her own pen now and doesnt seem to be doing very good,,Any info you could help me with or tell me what it is???????the hen is a Rhode Island red,about five months old..I went out to pen this morning and hen had died

    I'm so sorry you lost her.

    I had the same thing happen to my EE last week.
