2 chickens died

Recommended Posts

Bought our Pekin Batams at the beginning of 2021. First time we've had chickens, did our research & made sure they were bought from a reputable place, they've been wormed & use mite treatment. Since we got them 2 have sadly died already, one a few months ago & another died today. They didn't appear to be unwell, no signs of any issues that I can see. Is this normal to lose 2 of them so soon? Or any possibilities that could be causing this? 

Any help/suggestions be welcome, 

Thank you x

Sorry to hear you lost your hens. It could many different things. But very sudden deaths could be heart related. It can be very hard to spot an illness in a hen, as they are prey so they’ll do everything to conceal they’re weak. 

Did you contact the breeder yet?
