    What would cause a chicken to have a seizure? Mine just started flopping around and then died in my hands like she was having a seizure. She had been gasping for air all night and I was trying to help her.

    I can't exactly answer why but I think it's pretty much how they die. I had one do the same thing. They just do it right before they die. I don't know why. Sorry you lost your chickie.
