The hen was mostly intact on her side. Head and top of the neck were skinless and meatless. Mostly just connective tissue and bone. Honestly looked "plucked", pecked, or nipped at. Very small chunks ripped out many times.The stomach was torn open under a wing but intestines were still present. The crop might have been gone, hard to tell. Other organs looked intact.
Did the other chicken eat her? Did they kill her and eat her? These are free range Basques chickens. They have a large pasture, wooded area, and garden to pick through. I doubt they are missing anything in their diet. They certainly aren't bored.
