    That is really sad. I lost my first chicken this year and I cried. We buried her under a lovely tree. How do you know she had an illness? If you think she did and you have other chickens you should look online here and see what you need to do to protect the others.
    So sorry.

    If it was indeed coccidiosis, you might want to consider medicating all of your birds.
