We had a bonfire last weekend and apparently our friends 11 year old son was kicking at the chickens. My mother caught him and told him to get away from the chickens. The next day one of my favorite black stars was dead in the coop. She was just laying there dead... no blood. She hadn't been acting sick before this. She was only 1 year old. I think he killed her. This is the first time I have lost a chicken.... it is very sad.
