    This morning I discovered that one of my chickens died last night in the coop. No signs of intruder. The other 3 are fine. When my husband picked her up, she had something round bloody stuck in vent hole. It was a mess. Does this mean she had a broken egg inside? She seemed fine yesterday.

    Thank you! The other 3 are doing fine. I have no idea who will be the leader now. She was the leader in the pecking order.
