Is it possible for a hen to die during egg laying? My girl was showing all the signs of her first egg yesterday and this morning I found her dead in a nesting box. She was healthy, eating well, drinking just fine, no mites or fleas and has been wormed. Even her poop was fine and normal. I felt her vent and there did seem to be a lump, but I couldn't see it for confirmation. She was extremely small, that's why we named her Teeny. She was about the size of a silkie only she was an RIR. I didn't think size makes a difference, I just assumed her eggs would be smaller. Now, I don't know. Should I worry about the rest of my flock?
