My Miliie a beautiful wheaten maran died today.....no warning, nothing........just dead. She was one of my three pet chickens. The two others are fine. She just died and she was only one year, two months old. No predator.. nothing just died. Why??? I'm sitting here crying.....I actually go to the grocery and buy them greens and vegetables every other day. I feed them the best food you all recommend. i provided the best predator proof housing possible. I played with them. i am with them at least 10 times a day. My dh thinks i am obsessed, but she died...never even looked sick,never even sluggish and was always eating and acting okay. I can barely stand this. What happened? I know you won't be able to help me, but has this ever happened to you before and just how can this happen as I don't think I can take it again. My husband says - get another, but I can't stand the pain, the not knowing -if this could happen again....could it be something that could happen to Amble and Easter too.
