    Hello! We had one of our hens pass on Tuesday. I'm not sure really what happened because she was fine this weekend. Monday I noticed she had diarrhea, Tuesday she stayed in a nesting box so I brought her inside. She had diarrhea, shaking, hard breathing and could really stand up. Any ideas on what it could have been?

    I'm not an expert when it comes to diagnosing chicken ailments, the best way of finding out would be to have a necropsy done. Are your other chickens ok? If not, post on the Emergency/Illness forum and describe all the symptoms you are seeing.

    Best of luck to you!
