A friend found one of her hens dead and brought her over here so we could look inside. The hen was found laying on her back, head turned to the side, legs straight out behind her. No signs of trauma. WE have butchered plenty of chickens, but never really inspected the innards closely so could use your thoughts. Here is the cecum, the tubes were very thin then they bulge out at the ends. We didn't open them up, but I still have the hen outside (out of reach of cats) so I could still do that if you think it would help. Top center in this pic there is a weird mass that looks like a bubble, it was filled with fluid that squirted out when I cut it open. We also found pockets of a gel like substance here and there (one was attached to the heart). I think the lungs were a bit brighter colored than I am used to seeing, maybe because she wasn't bled out when she died? Or maybe they are normal and I just don't remember right? The kidneys? I thought they looked rather grainy, can't remember if that's normal? I tried to get a closer pic but the camera wouldn't get focused closer in. The liver was dark and normal looking, the only other thing I can think to mention is that she died yesterday and the friend left her outside for the night (temps 35 or so), then she put her in a cooler with an ice bag while she was at work and came out here after work. When she opened the crop to check the contents it REEKED. It was full of grass and food, nothing abnormal except the smell. Would that be from sitting for close to 24 hours? Anything else that you think would be helpful to see? Do these look normal to you? Any thoughts are appreciated!
