I'M CHICKEN SITTING - HELP!
I am watching 6 chickens over the summer while my neighbors are out of town. Its been 5 weeks since I've been watching them. Yesterday out of no where, I found one lying inside the hen house DEAD!!! Now one of the other chickens is having like a violet color on its comb. Should I be worried that she might die as well? I contacted the owner and she said it might be a disease, don't eat the eggs produced. The weather here has been from 90-100 for a few days. The day before the chicken died they were fine. Can you please help me shed some light on the situation. I'll take anything you have to offer.
