Hi, one of my pet hens, a Pekin, just died suddenly. She seemed rather fine yesterday but when i went out to let them out this morning she was dead and stiff, though i think she had only just died as my younger brother went out to check them before me and he said that she wasnt moving when he patted her and that her eyes were slitted. So i went out to see and i found her dead, i couldnt even see her eyes as she had her head curled around her body. I don't know what happened? They are our beloved pets so i am really upset After reading up i think she may have been egg bound. She had never laid before but her sister just laid the day before and yesterday this chicken kept going back and forth to her nesting area and my brother said it looked like her bottom was going up and down in her nesting box as if she was trying to lay. I did suspect at least one of my hens (her sister) had MG though we hadnt treated her yet but i hadnt seen any signs from this hen who just died and i dont think they can die from that anyway.... Could this affect my whole flock of 4 now...? Any information would be much appreciated, thanks. This is devastating we are really attached to our chickens and her sister and her were just insuperable, so i hope her sister wont fret. I havnt seen any signs of stress from her, she seems to be sticking with our Silkies, which is good.
