Utah! - Page 3129
I had a hen die unexpectedly once and contacted Utah State University, thinking they would test the bird for free. Nope... it was something close to $50 if I remember right...
Perhaps with the bird flu going around, the state is doing it for free now... ?
Congrats! That's a great treasure to find.
From the info I looked at, USU is one of the state labs. They called me back and it was $60 for a necropsy, more for testing if needed and $8 intake fee . His comb was blue and since we're pretty certain it was the no crow collar or maybe the combo of the collar and food getting stuck in his throat, we're going to dispose of him ourselves. My daughter is devastated. I feel horrible. I knew it was time to check it again.

I use the 'Brute' plastic trash cans for my bulk storage needs. So far no issues with condensation sprouting my feed. The foregoing dead rooster saga is so very sad.
Here are some pictures! (And the coop I built or her... Spoiled chickens...)
