    One of my hens just died. I wanted to see if I could tell what killed her. I opened her up and cant tell without reference. I did take some pics which I can share but I didnt want to post. There is something really large that might be her heart. Can anyone help me with this?

    Many of us on BYC do like necropsy pictures, so I would post them and edit the title of your thread to warn people of the necropsy pictures.

    Yes Kathy, thank you. Ive sent a little girl in to UC Davis in the past but the necropsy results didnt shed light on anything. I thought it was time for me to learn by doing.
