    In the past week I have had 3 healthy chickens just drop dead. They were all about 6 months old and had been in the same coop. Two of them I found in the coop just laying there and unable to move then were dead that afternoon and the third was completely fine this morning and I just found it dead.. any suggestions are welcome

    I'm so sorry you lost your chickens :(. What has your weather been like? I lost 11 chickens this time last year in the heat. And it can appear as if they dropped dead
