    I didn't think it'd be unwise to house larger chicks with my bantams. The 2 bantams and 4 larger chicks all got along, no pecking, no quarreling. They are free fed, so there's no fighting over food. I just woke up this morning and checked on my chicks as usual, and there was poor Despereaux, dead on the spot.

    There was no swollen crop, no pasty butt, nothing out of the ordinary. She was thriving when I let her free-roam and cuddle with me yesterday. I don't get it.

    Should I house my other bantam separately now?
