While I was at work today, my husband got things set up to process our thanksgiving turkey and when I got home he was collecting eggs. He had 3 blue ones and told me which hen he saw getting out of the box. I was super excited because all my easter eggers were laying really pretty blue eggs. Just as we were getting ready to round up the turkey we heard a weird noise. It was almost like a chicken yell. Or kinda like when they eat to fast and get the hiccups, but different. So I went to go see what it was going on and the very same hen my husband just saw getting out of the nest box not even an hour earlier had a whole bunch of blood coming out of her mouth. There was blood splattered on the wall and other chickens, so I think the sound we heard was like a cough or something. I picked her up and she was gasping for air and I could here a gurgling sound. So we immediately put her out of her misery, which really upsets me. We cut her open and looked around inside. There was blood in her crop, but I think that was from swallowing it. Her skin was very yellow, jaundiced maybe, and her liver was orange. I couldn't find anything else wrong. She was 29 weeks old. Anyone know what this is? Is it contagious? Should we not eat our turkey? We went ahead and processed him and all his insides looked normal.
