Lost our first hen every yesterday (of course its only been 5 months) to something very odd. Hoping someone can explain what may have happened. Found her in the coop, pretty droopy and lifeless. Her comb was sort of shriveled and one wing was drooping. She wasnt walking a whole lot. It did not appear as if a predator got to her either. Then my wife saw stuff hanging off her bottom. I didnt look to close but it obviously was internal organs that were hanging out of her vent. My guess is her insides just werent positioned correctly for egg laying and upon laying her first few eggs things got pushed out. Does this sound plausible? Any other ideas?
