    One my cochin hens died on me. She was acting slugish for a couple of days. I penned her up by her self. She was eating and drinking and her poop looked fine. No runny eyes or nose. All I can think of is might have injured herself comming off the roost, or gotten in something poison. Any ideas?

    Im sorry [​IMG] How old was she? The good thing is it sounds natural, and not something that can spread.
