    One of our 13 chickens was found dead today. They are about a year and half old. They all appear healthy and she did not suffer any type of trauma. We have CCTV and a review of the video showed she was eating at the feeder at approximately 0750 hrs this morning, she laid down near the feeder and never got up. Is it possible she could of choked? Any other ideas?

    If she choked, there will be tons of food in her esophagus.
