    We had two Barred Rocks, and one had been sneezing for a while. Then last week while we were on vacation she died! Anyone have any ideas of what might have been wrong? She was about 1 and a half years old. Is there a reason we should worry about the other chickens? Thanks, any advice will be helpful.

    Quote:Sorry for your loss. Most likely it was a chronic respiratory disease (CRD) of some sort unless it was something in the environment causing her to sneeze and causing death. If it was a CRD, there's a very good chance that it can spread. Here's a link to CRD's: Look for one that best fits the BR's symptoms.
