She just passed, she was comfortable but it was very traumatic. She was held and talked to in her last moments
If the hen had lost weight recently, chances of it dying from poisoning are slim. The only way to know find out what The cause of death was is to have a necropsy done or do your own necropsy.With such little time of symptoms and passing I would check into poisoning. I'm sooo sorry.
The purple comb and the wheezing sounds like a circulation problem. Try to take her to a vet and if you can return her to her coop, make sure that it’s safe, well ventilated and has water when it’s hot or when the air is dry. Try to feet her some wet fruit and veggies if she eats anything. That will hydrate her a bit as well.I have reason to believe one of my 3 year old hens is currently dying. Her comb is purple, she's gasping, she's resting her beak on the floor, etc. I'm considering possible injury? She was laying just before this, perfectly fine, and then she jumped down and stumbled out of the coop. She had bad balance and everything. She won't eat or drink, she's currently on my table swaddled in a blanket. She's sitting, but slumped more to the side. Please help. View attachment 2370316
