How likely is it for a hen to choke to death?? This is my first occurance of a randomly dying chicken and I'm at a loss. I watched the whole thing happen; saw her lip on the ground, picked her up thinking she was already dead but she was hardcore gagging, I tried to help the best I could but within maybe a minute and a half she spasmed and died (). She was a 3 year old Delaware hen that I actually got from someone else. Any ideas?
