Came home today to my husband telling my my Jersey giant hen was dead. She was fine yesterday and this morning.... actually laid an egg today. She was about 6.5 months old and has been laying eggs for about a month. Last few days they have been getting bigger. My husband found her under the bench in the coop. He actually thought she was just sleeping since she was sitting there with just her head forward. Feet still under her, no signs of distress. Was still warm too. She was gaining weight, eating and foraging normally. She is the latest in my deaths... all seem from different causes. The only thing odd, besides being dead.... was that there was yellow fluid around her vent area. ? Yolk? Could she have been egg bound after laying an egg or just died from heart issues or something.... ? I am starting to think that I am not meant to raise chickens... any help would be appreciated.
