    I came home and she was on the coop floor, no idea why she died, her weight was good and I believe she was still laying. A few feathers missing under her vent but no bulge - wouldn't there be one if she was eggbound? She seemed fine this morning when I went to work but she was stiff by the time I found her right after work. She was almost 11 months old and went through so much as a chick, with an ear infection that I treated for 3 weeks and then going crossbeak. I thought she was a success story. Poor Zippy. I just want her alive again. [​IMG]

    aaaawwww, I am so sorry. It is so hard when we go through a lot to help our pets. Well, it's hard even when we don't get that chance, too.

    I'm sorry. [​IMG]
