    I lost my only BR hen today. I had isolated her but it apparently was too late.

    She didn't have any respiratoyry, or diarrhea. No outward symptoms that anything was wrong except I noticed she was less active for a week or so. When I picked her up to move her she was lighter than when I got her 6 weeks ago.

    I wonder if the tom injured her during breeding. She was fine when she started laying down for him. I never actually saw him breed her though.

    So, I'm looking for a replacement. I'm in central, NY so within 100 miles of the Utica/Syracuse area will work for me.

    If anyone has one, please contact me privately.

    Sorry for your loss. I have been trying to find some hens here in Alabama but no luck so far. I have plenty of Bourban Reds just need some other breeds. Good luck on your search!
