One of my chickens died last night. She was a white leghorn & the smallest of all my girls ( i used to call her scrawny) but she laid the largest eggs. Yesterday she wasn't quite herself & this morning she was dead, looked like she just dropped of the roost.
In the last few weeks i have lost 2 other birds, anothrr white leghorn who went in a simular way & a brown leghorn who had sour crop, seemed to recover from that, but then got the droopy tail & wings & died before i could do anything for her.
So after losing scrawny this morning i decided to cut her open to see if anything was obvious, (My other half did the dissecting & i just did a bit of pointing).
These pics are what we found.
Could anyone confirm what we are thinking, that its cancer or suggest what else it may be?
