    What did she have? I read a lot of posts but I am not sure what killed her. Feedback would be great! Her tummy was puffy but we did not feel an egg. The 5 other chickens seem fine. Thanks Julia

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm sorry to hear you lost a hen :hugs There could be so many reasons as to why she passed. I'm sure if you post in the emergency injury disease section members there should be able to help you. Give as much detail as you can. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Hope you find the answers you would like. Enjoy BYC :frow

    some folks take the bird to the vet for a necropsy, especially if more than one die in the same manner
