2 of my hens have been poorly and this morning i went to let them out and 1 had died. the other 1 thats poorly is struggling to walk about and just sits there in the corner, dont know whats wrong with them maybe old age. they are ex batts so i'm glad they have had a good life since i got them, hope this 1 pulls through

Oh I'm sorry to hear that.  Hope that you can take some comfort from the fact that they were able to end their days with you living as chickens should.

Oh what a shame :( At least the girls had a better latter part of their little life than the start. Well done you for giving them a lovely home  :)
if wishes were changes.......

I'm so sorry.

I just lost my Alice (ex batt) so know just how you feel.

I'm consoling myself in that she died peacfully in her own nest box which is a million times better than ending up as a chicken pie or a vindaloo.

Hope the other one pulls through.
Even if the voices aren't real,
They have some really good ideas!!!

Oh I'm sorry to hear about this.  It must be terribly sad for you, but those girls have had a good second half of their lives with you. 
When I die I will slide in sideways, a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming, "Whooo hooo!  What a ride!" as life is to be enjoyed to the fullest!

What symptoms were they displaying? What were their combs like?
Their crops?
Do you think it was old age?

I noticed that one of my ex bats was developing a blue comb last week in the heat despite having on demand access to water.  She's the dominant one too, so it wasn't the other girls being bullies.  A quick bowl of water soon sorted her out.
