    I went out to lock the girls up last night to find Doris laid on her side dead under the roost bars. She had blood around her vent and there was a bloody egg in the box. Was this just stress from laying an egg?

    I'm so sorry to hear that - I don't know an answer for you. Hope someone else can help.

    It's possible she got an internal injury and bleeding killed her.
