My little Zelda died in my arms. She has been in molt but starting to look almost done. Was terrific 5 hours earlier but found her hiding in a corner of the coop at lock-up time. Swollen abdomen, droopy wings, straining to push and terrified. I never did feel an egg. I soaked her in the tub, fed her tums & C, greased up her vent. She strained until prolapse. I tucked everything back in but she kept straining and eventually died, I think from a heart attack. This all happened in about an hour. Right now I feel so bad for not being able to help her. Of course, she was my absolute favorite hen, the light of my flock.
