    [​IMG] are you saying some animal gutted her or maybe the other hens attacked and killed her?

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Not sure I understand the gutted part either - and honestly, sad as it is, sometimes birds just die and the reason is not always clear. As long as she showed no signs of illness before she died and the other birds seem healthy, you should not worry too much.
