My question is about normal death rates for chickens. I'm not talking about predators or disease that wipes out lots of chickens or death from newly shipped chicks. I'm talking about a random chicken death here and there without any obvious symptoms of disease. Have you guys found any correlation between moving chickens from their cozy brooder to a big outdoor coop getting stressed out and dying? Have you noticed any specific age they seem to randomly die? Any breeds more death prone? Are some chickens just weaker than others? Any corrolation between where you buy chicks and death? Can certain breeding/management of parent stock make weaker chicks who seem to be healthy at hatch but are more prone to death as they age? What do you think is a normal expected death rate in a healthy flock and when should you worry? Just some ideas for discussion.
