dWe have (had) 7 older hens (about 2 years old) and 7 pullets and one rooster (about 6 months old). The older hens and the pullets/rooster are separated within the coop with chicken wire. This morning my dad found a dead hen and when I went to my dad's house this evening, I found another dead hen. I'm wondering if it could be the heat that we had today? Our temps reached 110 but they are under the shade and have a dirt floor. My dad found an old fan that he installed this evening so I'm hoping that will help them. Are there any bad signs that I should look for? Can we still eat their eggs? On a side note, we found a baby bird on the ground at our house - It died the next day. When I went to my parent's house this evening, there was a baby bird next to the coop and I'm sure it won't survive until tomorrow.
