    Oh no-- I'm so sorry to hear it. Where do you live? Is it possible for you to send one off for necropsy? It sounds as if you might have a respiratory disease circulating in your flock. Can you list symptoms with as much detail as possible for us?

    Tip from a newbie: if you haven't already, you may want to isolate any sick hens from the rest of the flock. That way, it will be easier to control something contagious.
