Hi everybody, this is my first post as a BYC member. Unfortunately, this morning, I found one of my beloved chickens dead in the nest box. It had just been running around, happy, yesterday, so to find her dead this morning was such an awful shock. It was so heartbreaking, but now I'm worried about the other chickens. Is it common for chickens to die when they lay an egg? If that did happen, did she have like an aneurism or something? I've had these chickens for four years now, and they have been nothing but healthy, and fairly normal. I give them fresh water and food everyday, and clean their coop often. I just don't know what happened. There was nothing that appeared wrong with the chicekn, it just looked like she had been sleeping. BYC had been nothing but helpful in the past, so any thoughts about this would be greatly appreciated.
