Two weeks ago we found our favorite girl, Henrietta, dead (6 mo. old BO just getting ready to lay). She hadn't seemed ill at all and we have no idea why she died. Our best guess after I posted earlier was Sudden Death Syndrome or maybe that she was eggbound with her first egg. Six days later, I thought Sage was sick. She wasn't really able to walk, so I pulled her out and put her in a hospital crate. The next morning, she laid her first egg and seemed just fine after that. She's shown no signs of illness, lethargy, not eating, etc since then. She hasn't laid another egg that we can find, but we knew it could be a while between first eggs. Just now, my husband found her dead as well. Both she and Henrietta were in the coop, no possibility of a predator killing them. They hadn't gotten too cold. A week after Henny died, we moved all of the girls into their new coop, so I don't think it's something in the coop that's killing them either. I'm so upset right now. Feel like a real crappy chicken momma that I let this happen to another one. And I'm so worried that I'm just going to keep losing the rest of my girls. Please, someone help me figure out what's gone wrong! I can't keep going through the heartache of losing them and can't bear the thought of telling my little girl that another one has died. We have no extra money at all, so I don't know how we'd pay for a vet right now. But if that's what I need to do, please tell me and I'll beg and borrow from family to pay for it.
