Here are the photos I took this morning. I believe I was feeling the gizzard that was very hard. I cut it open and inside was one rather large rock and I'm not sure it this is normal or not. As far as everything else it looked normal to me but I'm not an expert. Anyone that would like to offer a comment I would appreciate it.

She was pooping out small rocks before she passed away and if you look farther back in the thread she was sick about a month ago. After 3 days she passed a rather large object then pooped about a dozen times within an hour and she was back to normal and really doing good until about a week ago.

Date code was not set these pictures are from this morning.

I'm going to bump this once to see if anyone has any thoughts. Maybe the pictures don't show anything unusual. The gizzard did have several rocks in it one was very large and is pictured separately.

The liver is not a good color and there are spots on the liver. I have no idea if this has anything to do with what was happening to your hen...but by the liver I would say she has not been well and her liver was being taxed.

It should be the rich, deep red color like shown in the video.

Please disregard the blue arrow...lol.

She wasn't starving. She still had fair fat reserves. Sometimes animals/birds can appear incredibly thin on the outside...while still having surprising fat reserves inside.
