Hey Folks I need some help here. I have 7 hens together, been living together for quite a while. They all get along well. This morning there were 7 eggs, yesterday the same. No one appeared or looked to be eggbound. When I came home from work tonight, my one hen was dead--intestines strewn outside her body. Below her vent where she lays eggs, about 3 inches, was a gaping hole with her intestines hangining out. No other injuries or marks. She passed an egg this morning... what happened??? I thought chickens only had one opening... This hole was about 3 inches below her egg vent, and spread open... lots of long intestines hanging. What happened? No other markings on any other hens. She was born in January. Thanks.
