    [​IMG] So sorry about your little barred rock. Often times, it's really difficult to tell why a chicken dies. She probably had some kind of internal issues...could be internal laying, could be heart issues, could be many different things. [​IMG]

    So sorry - you know i had the same thing several months ago - lost my favorite hen and it happened pretty quick - i was giving her anti biotics etc - she just went . I have learned the truth in the saying that some chickens deaths are somewaht of a mystery. No one else ever got sick or had any issues .....
