    A very good friend of mine lost of of her hens today [​IMG] She went out and found her dead in the nest box. When they turned her over, her vent was bloody!!

    Maybe she had a bad prolapse or an egg broke in there, cocci would give blood in poop, but it must have been something reproductive since she was in the nesting box? It's a tough one, it must have been pretty sudden whatever it was.
