my chicken just died, I need help with answers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
One of my chickens just died. It seemed like she was egg bound because she was not moving/walking abd had a lump in her stomach. So we put her in warm water for about 30 mins then put her in a towel. While she was in a towel she spasms and yellow liquid came out of her back side and mouth, it smelled terrible. She died right after that. What would cause this?

Sounds like ascites.....necrospy would confirm or find something else.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Chickens sometimes just die rather randomly, not caused by you. Unless you have several chickens that are sick and dying, that might be something a person could do something about. Or you might need a necropsy, but generally speaking, sometimes a chicken just dies. I figure that there was something wrong inside, and don't worry about it.
