HI all- I hardly ever post as I find answers searching, and my flock has been pretty darn healthy. My flock usually free ranges in my yard or is in there huge pen. I have a mix of 7 hens and a nasty Welsumer rooster. This summer I lost a hen to what I figured out later was egg bound. So much to the dismay of my hens I have been checking then regularly - their production has gone way down but some are molting and this is the time of yr where they give me about 1/2 the eggs they use to. So, last night I go out to the coop, count all the hens - everyone is fine - chattering etc. This morning I wake up and my silver laced wyandotte was dead!! She was just fine - no signs of stress or anything yesterday. I can't imagine that she got into anything she shouldn't have ( they all hung around my husband as he was chopping wood and throwing them bugs ) Any ideas? I keep there coop clean, use DE in their boxes and have it mixed in the shavings in their coop. I haven't changed up anything. I also, just checked them for egg block the other day. Thank you for any help!
