    I just wanted to say hello and thanks to everyone who partisipates. My wife and I really love this web site. We are newbies. We have only had chickens around a year.
    I do need help. a few days ago, we found one of are chickens dead. She was around 13 months old. Everything looked normal on her except from behind she looked like her insides we eaten out. I am a little concerned. Any help on this. Thanks.

    Greetings from Kansas, Petespen, and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! As I'm not sure if what you are describing is from a fatal ailment or a predator, I think for the best and most advice you should post in one the links below - the folks that patrol those threads really know their stuff. Post in whichever one you fill it fits. Best of luck - hope you find out what happened to prevent it from happening again.
