    Lost Another Pullet

    Only a few days ago did I lose one of my 10 week-old Australorp pullets to a predator and now another one. Two dead Australorp pullets so far. This one was found dead inside the chicken coop. She was on the floor by a corner. No missing parts or signs of attack. She was just dead.


    So I plucked her and feed her to my dogs.

    Sorry to hear that you lost another hen. If there was no sign of an attack, personally I would be wary of feeding her to either animals or humans, since you don't know what she died from. Keep a close eye on those dogs of yours.
