    What do you do for what? Do you mean what do you do with the body? Bury it.

    Do you have other chickens about which you're concerned? If so, you can refrigerate (not freeze) the body and take it into the vet tomorrow, first thing, for a necropsy/histopathology.

    The vet will need a lot of information about your birds (diet, situations of coops, etc).

    A little confused though - what exactly do you need/want from us? Could you clarify?
