    I built a new chicken pin yesterday for my new polish trio. I used an old chicken box but cleaned it out... never having problems with it before. I went out there this morning and the rooster is dead and the hens are not getting around to good. I have had them for 5 days and they had been fine until i put them in the pin.
    what could of happened?
