    Hi. I went out to shut the coop and i counted all but one chicken over and over again. So i got our spotlight and i found her on the ground dead in the chicken yard. We inspected her. She had no wounds or blood or broken bone or anything unusual. She definitly wasnt sick. I really dont know. Anybody have any ideas what mightve happened? She was totalky fine this morning

    By any chance are her wattles and comb dark colored ? If so this is generally the sign of a heart attack.
