Hi, This hen hadn't layed for almost a year. She went broody, raised a couple of chicks and never seemed to recover. She ate fine but drank more than normal. She spent a lot of time on the floor of the coop, not moving much. She appeared bright and alert. When I would hold her very upright she would gasp as if she wasn't able to breathe properly. I thought I would find internal laying to be the issue, instead I found all this fat in her. This is the first chicken I've opened up that wasn't a grocery store chicken. Would you agree that this chicken has too much fat? I think it was pushing on her internal organs. If you don't think that was the cause of death could you direct me to where I should look for the cause of death? Graphic photos of a chicken cut open with all the insides exposed! Don't look if you're sqeamish. Looking under the breast bone. Breast bone removed. Just for the curious, these round things are her eggs. Although she hadn't layed in a year she had them. This is the gizzard. It was really wrapped in fat on both sides. Thanks for looking and giving me any insight.
