No his head was resting in the corner. But, his body was as stiff as a board, he looked like a torpedo

It's impossible to say. If you can tell that his neck is broken, it's possible that he may have gotten spooked and tried to go through the fence in the corner. I've seen my large hens attempt to do that a time or two, and they were really frantic when they tried. It's possible his head may have gotten caught in a bad position and snapped the neck. Just a theory...

 

So sorry for your loss...

Geesh!  Certainly didn't die of old age.  If he appeared healthy up til now and was eating and drinking as he should, it must've an undetected problem he was born with, unless there's a possibility he and a dominant rooster got into it...I've had that happen

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

X2 or if any small wound something could've still tried to pull his head through still.
