Hoots was a 3-4 yo americauna hen. She died taking a dust bath this evening. She had been laying duck size eggs as of late. I found no visible injuries to her body. She was a good weight. My dogs were barking towards he coop early this evening. It might have been er death throws. We did a short necropsy on her and found a very large amount of coagulated blood in her. Obviously a bleed occured. We didn't go over every organ but the gizzard,liver and intestines looked fine. I felt for eggs but didn't feel any. Then id had enough and decided to call it good. We had a partial answer. Anyone know of a reason a chicken would bleed out internally?
