I have been out of town for a week and had my folks watching our chickens. Our first morning back (yesterday) I found one of my welsummer pullets dead on the floor. She was still warm under her body. What I am wondering is what I should look for in a post mortem. I was wondering if she was maybe egg bound and my folks didn't notice, or maybe laid internally.... what would that look like when I open her up? Shania was one of the roos favourites and was pretty worn - I had a hen saddle on her but there was nothing unusual with that. I could use a few pointers on what to look for to try and figure out what happened to her. She was not yet a year old.... I hate not knowing Grrrrrr! I know that chickens die but I tend to take it rather personally as I try to take the best possible care of our birds. Thanks for any advice folks!
