    Hello,
    I am a new member and just lost a chicken today from seemingly sudden death. I believe it is only 2 years old. Any suggestions as to what might have happened? She was a Cochin.

    Thanks,
    CP

    Welcome to BYC. There are many reasons why a chicken can die. It would be best to post in the "emergency" section and give as much details as possible and perhaps you'll get responses. Sorry for you loss.
