    I had a hen that was sick yesterday. Her crop was expanded, she kept on falling asleep and she was regurgitating her food.
    This morning she was dead.what could have happened to her. I suspect cocciodosis but I don't have experience with this disease

    Sorry for your loss... Those symptoms are sometimes part of the dying process. If you live in the US, many States offer free or low cost necropsy services.
