We finally made the decision to euthanize Sunny today. This is the hen that has been having problems with laying internally. We found her walking around absolutely COVERED in egg. She looked really irritated, and had been pulling the egg laden feathers out. Her abdomen was grossly distended, and she seemed rather listless. We had a vet appointment for our dog today, so we took her in with us. She was given a shot of pink fluid into her abdomen, and she peacefully passed within about 3 minutes. I did a post-mortem, and found a few internal problems. I found a tennis ball sized organ/tumour. Mom seems to think that it is her stomach? It was rock hard. We opened it up and found what looked like really old food, and little cubic glass-like things inside. We have no idea what they are. We do have bits of broken glass on our property, as it used to be a car graveyard. The only fact that defies that these are pieces of glass, is that they are all perfectly cubic. They are not sharp, and the edges are rounded off. First Opening... All of the way open... The inside of the organ/tumour... On the bottom of this picture, you can see the healthy layer of fat, and right above it one can see a veined, golfball sized organ. This is a part of her reproductive system. I removed it. Here is a clearer pic of it. Here is a shot of the whole ovary. I don't know much about this, but it seems abnormally large to me. Here are a few shots of abdominal cavity, showing the liver, small intestine, large intestine, and many of the yolks. So that's it. I drove her out to the middle of no where and layed her to rest. Her full name was Sunny Side Up. She was one of my original 6, of which only three remain. RIP Darling.
