I found my 9 month old hen dead. No noticeable injuries or blood. She was healthy and last laid an egg yesterday. I'm wondering if a chicken can break it's own neck? The area she was found in was a dog kennel with vertical bars that her head could have easily fit through. Is it probable that in her desire to get out she broke her neck sticking it through the bars?
She wasn't found in the bars, but lying on her belly next to the bars. Just hoping to figure out what happened to her today. THank you.
