I feel horrible, think I may have killed my chicken. The vet said had ascites and drained the fluid off her abdomen. She said the mass in her stomach would keep growing and kill her eventually. That was a couple months ago. Just recently her abdomen got large and hard and she wasn't moving around as much, ruffled feathers, holding one leg up. Today I took 35 cc's of yellow fluid off her abdomen. She started coughing as soon as I set her down and 5 minutes later she was dead. I'm sick over it, maybe if I let her be she would still be alive. I think right after i took the fluid off, the rooster may have jumped her. I was making sure he didn't but ran in the house quick and came out to find her dead with liquid around her face. Obviously I will never do that again. Any ideas what happened?
