I had a 1-1/2year old Golden Sex Link. Her neck had been broken. When we found her little body, her neck was denuded but I found no blood whatsoever. One of my "Reds" had nipped at her feathers. Since then (about a week and a half ago) we have been on a major rat/opossum hunt (kill). But, I don't think those varmints killed No rigor had set in (does that happen in chickens?). Since then we have been on a major rat kill and whatever else comes in the area (opossum). Now that I have said all that, the girls quit laying ( except the Reds...bless them)..a couple have molted and are over it, but now I am at a loss.
