went to check on my silver laced hens this morning and had lost one of my girls. I've had the 2 for about 2 weeks now. purchased at around 1 year old. Anyways Ive read a lot up on them and know they are a cold hardy bird. (I'm in Ga) I'm trying to figure out what could have been the cause. Both looked very healthy. The one I still have has been my egg layer 4-5 eggs a week so far. The one that has passed I noticed a few days ago she was getting a little bigger in size and her head was getting more of a reddish color. I also had caught her sitting in one of the boxes at one point. I was thinking she might start laying soon. So im not thinking it was weather. it has been cold but not extreme. I am not running a light to them at night which i have read quite a few threads on here about that. I was wondering maybe she had been sick from the seller and I just hadn't noticed? Any help would be awesome especially those familiar with silver laced. Thanks.
