    i used to have a hen and she was very healthy and very Beautiful
    She used to eat lettuce and all kinds of food.
    One day i noticed something it was on her leg
    she was getting a strange bruise on the left side of the leg
    she kept getting sicker and sicker i know she was dieng
    the day came and she Died
    but before i disposed of her i noticed that the Bruise Turned
    dark purple and spreaded around her leg
    ive always wanted to know what this is
    She was a beautiful Hen and laid big brown Eggs
    The eggs would always contain 2 yolks
    And she even gave us one big brown egg that gave us 3 yolks
    when she was about to die the egg came out squishy and bluish/rubbery

    Was it a flat or a raised lump?

    I'm not an expert but if it was raised it could have been a tumor (that's just the first thing that came to mind)
