I've been seeing a lot of questions recently about chicken sudden death syndrome and unfortunately I recently experienced this myself.

I have a very good video system installed and thought others might benefit from seeing this. Omelette was one of my favorites, a 3 year old Buff Orpington. She had been acting completely normally, and in the video before this one, she was sitting in the nest box doing her thing, moving around, picking up pine shavings, etc. The only good news is she didn't suffer and went VERY quickly. RIP Omelette...

Wow that was quick and by the looks of it totally unexpected even for your poor chicken.
Thank you for sharing, and so sorry for your loss.

I think either a heart attack or an aneurysm - actually thinking the latter because as you watch the video you'll see her shake her head a couple of times before it hits.

Too bad you couldn't have had her autopsied by your local extension service, and shown them the video. Not often you get something like that on film.
