I had a BO pullet, roughly 18-20 weeks old, die a few days ago, (Tuesday midday). I was saving the hen for a necropsy, she was in a box in the cellar. Yesterday I decided to put her in a bag in the freezer, as the lab is taking FOREVER. After 36+ hours she's still very soft and pliable. No rigamortis at all. Kind of freaked me out! What is going on?! Her symptoms were odd when sick. She had cocci at 6 weeks and never really recovered. She was always skinny, unthrifty, didn't grow well, and after her crooked beak buddy died, she really wasted away. Her comb was very pale, but she would eat and drink and her poop was normal. On her last day she lay down and just couldn't get to her feet again. I put her in a box and within a few minutes she was dead. After the cocci she always looked off, but her decline was pretty quick in the end. I posted and people suggested Mareks, that's why I was saving her for the lab. So here I am now, days later and wondering what the heck is going on?! The rest of the flock looks perfect!! Does this indicate what she may have had? Has anyone else ever seen this?
