    I had a opossum kill 5 of mine. Are their heads gone when you find them dead?

    Maybe your chicken had a stuck egg, That can cause them to die, Also, mites can too. Maybe she had mites.

    I dont see anything like that i just switched there feeders and the attacked the feeder so im hoping they were just not eating enough i thought maybe they were slowing down because they were outside grazing on bugs and such but after seeing them go nuts on there old feeder i think there were not getting enough food we had two of the floor plastic floor feeds with the hole for them to get the food and with 16 bird i think possibly some were getting pushed off
