    I just found my favorite hen fallen over dead in the coop. She had been going through what I assumed was a terrible moult. So, she hadn't been laying eggs either. No idea how old she was... but I examined her body and found bright green poo and what looked like a prolapse. I just want to make sure she didn't have something contagious.
