Do you use any type of lightbulbs in your coop?  Some bulbs are harmful to birds.
I'm sorry for your loss.

Subject: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup-NYC] sudden chicken death

I'm looking for a little advice.

I found one of my hens dead in the coop this morning with no obvious reason. I'm wondering if anyone has advice about determining why she might have died. Also, as a country girl, I'm used to burying dead pets; what am I supposed to do in the city?

I have one suspicion about her cause of death. I saw a dead rat in the yard after they had been roaming free yesterday, and if she pecked at it she may have consumed poison. Is there a reasonably way to get/do a chicken autopsy?
