Hen dropped over this morning

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This morning when my daughter let the hens out to forage, one of my hens walked out and just fell over. She layed on her back for a minute or two breathing heavily with eyes closed, spasmed a few times and died. Do you think this was a heart attack or an illness? Should I be worried about my other hens? Please help

No way to tell without lab work. If you want to know for sure, send the bird to your state poultry lab for necropsy.
