    Had a hen yesterday all of a sudden couldnt breathe. Thought maybe it was gap worms. Died today. Was only 5 months old. I did an autopsy and this is what i found. No worms. But look at all the fat inside. Is this cancer?? Bottom left is her gizzard. Covered in what looks as fat. Trying to figure this one out. Never seen this one before.
