My 7 month old cream legbar, Effie, suddenly died today. She was fine this morning & had just started growing her combe over the past two weeks. She was a healthy active hen who went round with her best pal, a wyandotte, hatched at the same time. I just can't believe it! My husband helped me check her over & there was no signs of wounds or anything. She was just lying there on her side, dead! How can a healthy hen die so young? It's heartbreaking & I know her best friend will miss her too. They tended to keep themselves separate from the big girls most of the time as they hadn't matured yet. So sad!
