    my chicken died during the night i looked around and i found out what i think killed my hen. the apartment behind me,who put their fence on my land sparyed for weeds and i think she got poisioned by the weed killer she was the friendliest hen i had. i am going monday to tell them move the fence or i will take it down. i am so ticked that hen suffered.

    I'd give them a bill for $25.00 as well, the cost of replacing a laying hen.
