    Update... Well, sadly, my dear sweet Louise died yesterday. I did take her to our local extension for necrospy. The findings were Egg Coelomitis with Hydrosalpinx and Focal Pulmonary Congestion and Edema. They are running a culture over the weekend to see if she had salmonella. What does this mean in layman's terms?

    Her only companion died exactly a month ago, but I didn't know to get a necropsy.

    They were NHR, don't know how old. We got them last spring; they were already laying and seemed happy and healthy. Louise went downhill as soon as Cutie died. The Pathologist didn't seem to think there might be any connection, but it just seems strange that they should die within one month of each other.

    Any thoughts from chicken lovers more experienced than me?

    Thanks,
    Regina

    She was an internal layer. She also had a lot of fluid build up inside her lungs and body.
    I am sorry for your loss.
