I lost my 2 yr old Buff Orpington today. It was a sudden death. This is my first feather baby loss. I took my baby nephew down to the coop to see my girls (he loves them) and I saw her laying there inside the coop, right by the door/ramp to the run. She seemed perfectly fine the last time I checked on the girls. There is no sign of illness or injury. I just don’t understand. I’m terrified for my other girls and absolutely heartbroken over my sweet Tansy girl she and her sister, Lemon are my favorites. So, so sweet. I’m so sorry for your loss.
This can happen without a obvious reason and taking care perfectly for you’re flock. I had a sudden death for the first time in 8 years. This can happen with humans too. A stroke or hart attack are the most obvious reasons.

I would check for bird mite to be sure that these are not in the coop.
And if it happens again within a week or two you should be worried. . A necropsy could be wise if it happens again.
