    This morning when my daughter let the hens out to forage, one of my hens walked out and just fell over. She layed on her back for a minute or two breathing heavily with eyes closed, spasmed a few times and died. Do you think this was a heart attack or an illness? Should I be worried about my other hens? Please help
