    One of my chickens just died. It seemed like she was egg bound because she was not moving/walking abd had a lump in her stomach. So we put her in warm water for about 30 mins then put her in a towel. While she was in a towel she spasms and yellow liquid came out of her back side and mouth, it smelled terrible. She died right after that. What would cause this?

    I agree it's probably sour crop ... Poor baby ... Sorry for your loss mine is currently sick with something too .... Doesn't seem like she'll make it which has left me crying in my couch ... Sorry to hear about your loss ... Sometimes people don't understand taut chickens are family ... It hurts just as much to lose them than it is to lose a dog or cat there the same ... Peace and love [​IMG]
