So Dolly died, after a few days of looking bad and maybe a month or so of runny poop. She was 2.5 yrs old and had been laying well right up until a cold snap in December when she decided to do a full hard molt. She never really got back to 100% after that, although her feathers finally did come in. Two days before her death, I noticed that she looked a bit unstable, like maybe the left wing and foot were not working quite right. She was also puffed up and breathing fast and noisy. Can any experts out there please take a look at her organs and let me know what you think? I am only used to seeing hearts, gizzards and livers when I buy them at the meat counter...is this much internal fat normal? What about the weird clear tips of her liver? And, is that her kidneys that are so swollen? I did find some yellowish masses in her oviduct, including one about an inch long that had hard things in it. I haven't seen any pics of "normal" organs so i don't have a good reference, but her ovaries looked strange to me and were fluid filled.. For those of you that are reluctant to cut your dead hen up, it was easier than I had expected. She had been dead for 12+ hours by the time I did it, so maybe that helped. https://picasaweb.google.com/101662986317462959743/DollyRIP?authkey=Gv1sRgCLzilIra0amH0gE THANKS and maybe now the rest of my flock can enjoy a little peace and quiet!
