I went out today to feed and water everyone and found one of our hens dead. I haven't noticed anything unusual about her behavior, so it was unexpected and I'm not sure if I should be concerned about our others. I took some photos of the only thing I could find wrong with her and was hoping someone would have an idea about what could have happened. I feel like I must have missed something wrong with her vent area during my quick daily checks... it looks like it maybe she had a prolapse that ruptured? We did find one egg with blood on it a few days ago, that's why we were checking them, but we weren't sure who laid it and didn't notice anything wrong with any of them. Obviously we missed something, but I'm not sure if I should worry about the others. I plan to check them tonight when they're calmer.
