    I have an almost 2 year old flock and i went to let them out this morining and I found miss floppy, One of my buff orpingtons on her back feet in the air and head tucked under her wing. No signs of truma but does any one know why she might of died. no one ever picked on Miss. Floppy because she would pick back she has 4 other buff orpington sisters that miss her as much as I will...[​IMG] hh and did I mention that this is the first hen Ive ever lost.

    I am so sorry! We had a similar thing happen to one of our BO's a few weeks ago. I was looking out my window and noticed she was laying down. I went out to the coop and she had her head tucked under her wing and wasn't moving. We think that it might have been a clogged egg. She hadn't laid in a few days and it was the only explanation we could come up with. Again, I am so sorry! The first one really is hard [​IMG]
