chickens dying, help
I have lost two of my black star hens this week. They are just coming out of their molt. The weather here has been around a 100 degrees all week. They are 15 months old and looked healthy until I found them dead. I just picked up some electrolytes to add to the water which the package says it is for stress. The hen that died today had yolk around its vent. Could it be the heat or might they have gotten egg bound due to stress from the weather?? They have fresh water everyday in three waterers. This is a small flock now just nine chickens and two guineas. Losing even one is really tearing me up. They are such pets.
Any help would be apreciated... Thanks, Kit
