Hen died quite suddenly...why??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I just went out to check on my girls, and my 11 month old Buff Orpington was laying there dead. I was just out there maybe two hours ago, and she, along with my 6 others were all perfectly fine.  What could've happened?? There was no blood on her anywhere except a little spot on her comb where I think maybe the others were starting to peck her (or maybe not). No feathers missing. I just don't understand...

Mother Hen to 2 Red Sex-Links, 1 Golden-Laced Wyandotte, 1 RIR, 1 Black Australorp, 1 Double-Laced Barnevelder, 2 Easter Eggers, 1 Swedish Flower Hen, 1 Egyptian Fayoumi, 2 Crested Cream Legbars, 1 Sapphire, and 1 Sapphire Roo (soon to be rehomed)!  RIP Chickeny

It can happen from so many things.

I was watching a rooster walking around dancing for hens. I turned around and he was dead, just seconds later.

I had a necropsy done at the state vet school.

He had a heart attack.

 

I recommend you do the same.
