Hi, I've been keeping chickens for the past 12 months, yesterday afternoon I found 1 of my hens dead in the coop. She didn't show any signs of being ill, I also realize that they are good at hiding illness as well. My concern is for my 5 remaining Hens. Is there anything that I should do to treat them & at the coop in case it was something contagious?

i would watch extra closely at their feeding habits, check for external parasites, and watch for any other signs of a change. i hope that's the end of your troubles. good luck

Thanx, We keep checking the others they are scratching & waddling about the place so fingers crossed.
