Sorry for your loss - is there any possibility that she might have gotten overheated?

From the sound of it, she was probably egg bound. Sometimes when they're laying or trying to lay, they act a bit broody. I don't know, though. It could have been some completely unrelated illness, too...sorry about your hen! :hugs
