    Went to Roost no problem, just like this one but when I got up for the first bird I found it dead on the floor.
    this one is still alive! very weird

    When this one dies I would have her sent in for testing. It sounds like you may have a problem brewing. In the meantime I would quarantine the sick one. It's far too late to prevent the flock from getting ill, but she is going to need to be quarantined for her safety. Once the other birds realize how sick she is she will get harassed and possibly killed by them.

    I am sorry. I truly have no idea what could be wrong with her.
