Sorry about your chicken, Brownchicken123.  How old was she, and were there other symptoms such as not eating, any diarrhea?  Had she been wormed, or had you checked for lice and mites.  Mites and worms can cause anemia, and worms can cause intestinal damage.  Chickens who move to new soil can sometimes get coccidiosis, and need to be treated with Corid (amprollium.)

I agree with you, parasites can be fatal... good advice!
