WHY WOULD A YEAR & A HALF OLD CHICKEN DIE?
(clay co. Florida )
I noticed one of my hen's combs shriveled up and turned gray I came out this morning and she was laying flat, her legs straight out back, face in the dirt dead. She was one and a half year old and never laid eggs. She slow down on her eating all within one day. She was laid out as if she may have had a heart attack no signs of kicking or struggling. I have 3 more hens in the same run that look fine what could this be? Thank you, Tim
