Got up yesterday morning and just had a feeling that something wasn't right in the big coop. Sure enough, one of the girls was lying dead in the run, next to the feeder, and another was dead up in the coop. There were no signs of illness or distress prior to this. These were young white Rocks who just started laying last month. Each of them lays 5-6 eggs per week, meaning that we get 4-6 eggs per day from them. However, the two days prior to the deaths, we only had 4 eggs and 3 eggs, respectively. So I'm wondering if maybe they were egg-bound. The other four girls in the big coop, and the two banty cochins in the small coop, were fine all day yesterday. Everyone seems fine today, too, for which I'm very thankful. It is just hard to lose them, especially just as they have started laying.
