Hi all, I am sad to report that I have lost my first chicken. Teriyaki was almost 1 1/2 years old. I have no idea what happened. She was fine this morning when I went out to feed everyone and late this afternoon she was just laying there dead. There were no wounds or anything on her. We checked her pretty close and she looked completely normal. The only thing I can think of is that I noticed that one of their combs was a bit paler than the rest but that is it. Not sure if it was even her... I have all buff orpingtons (now 5 of them) What can cause sudden death like that? There is one other one in there now with a bit of a paler comb but she is acting completely fine. It could even be the one I saw already tho. Should I be concerned about it?? Are the eggs safe to eat? or should I toss them? Any ideas on whats going on here? I really hope it wasn't something contagious to the other gals. Any help on what I should do now would be appreciated Thanks, Kim and my 5 remaining gals.
