One hen down

Went to feed the chickens and found one of our young Indian game hens dead in their hen house. Odd thing though she was lying flat on her back? In the open (well walkway of chicken house). Any other chickens we've lost to natural causes have been nesting and curled up... and they were older (least for their breed) this was one of the trio we bought in may. So she was only about 9 or 10 months old.
