    Over a couple or three weeks one of my RIR hens legs started turning yellow and her comb faded to light pink and was swelling, she had a messy vent area. She was eating and drinking good and was lively. This morning she was dead on the coop floor.
    Anyone have any idea what could have caused this? After getting 25 a year ago I now have 19 left. Various reasons, but first for this.
