One of my silkie hens was acting strange yesterday and then today she was dead. I found her isolated last night from the flock and she seemed a bit off but I didn't think too much of it. She spent the entire day free ranging and acting fine. Had access to fresh water and two different feeds (Layer crumbles and a seed mix) Not all my chickens lay eggs so I dont know if she's been laying or not. Her age is probably 2-3 years old. No other noticeable symptoms.Tomorrow, I'm going to treat my flock for coccidiosis and administer electrolytes in their water. Does anyone know of anything else I could do to prevent this from happening again? Or exactly what caused her death?
