Eric, my lovely fluffy poland cockerel was found dead today in the nest box. Nothing wrong prior that i could see. Not a mark on him. Stone cold dead. He was only 16 weeks old. What could have happened??
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.

So sorry :cry:
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

How sad :(  :(
There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss of memory, the other two I forget.

Big hugs from over here. So sorry and cant offer any explanation but can tell you that the same as happened here. I had 2 lovely Poland chicks that got to about 5-6 weeks and then the same thing, they died, no explanation :cry:  :cry:  :cry:
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most!!

That's very sad bedifferent :cry:

It's not uncommon though. Heart attack or brain hemorrhage usually !

Poor Eric, let him cock-a-doodle in peace.

Sending very big hugs here, it must of been quite a shock to discover him like that. I'm sorry for your loss, i hope you get a brand new and friendly cockerel soon. Will you get another? Poland?

There's also something called "Sudden Death Syndrome (flip over disease)".  

A seemingly healthy bird has a convulsion and is often found dead on its back.  The reason is not known but thought to be metabolic.
