    Found a dead chicken today. It appeared as if it were trying to pass something out of its vent. However, whatever it was didn't exit. Not being the expert, I buried it. I wonder if got egg bound?

    Sorry for your loss. It's difficult to determine the reason for sudden death but egg bound is always a possibility.

    Yeah, my daughter took it pretty hard to go gather feathers and find it dead.
