i have noticed a lot lately that a lot of peoples hens on here have been dying from " unknown " reasons. if your chicken is lethargic cant keep her eyes open hangs out in the coop a lot and doesnt come out to eat then she is EGG BOUND. look it up online to find out how to treat it. the reason i feel so strongly on letting people know this is one of my fav rhode island red hens died 2 days ago because she was egg bound. i didnt know what was wrong until after she died.
