One of my younger hens just died and I have no idea what happened to her. I was feeding them their night time meal and I couldn't find one of the hens we called Sneezy. I looked under the deck and she was hiding, laying down, with her eyes closed, under the steps. She wouldn't come when I called her like she usually does so I went in after her. When I pulled her out to see her, she looked very sick. Her whole face area was a deep redish purple along with her comb and wattles. Her eyes looked dilated and she would not stand. I was going to bring her in, but as I was holding her neck flopped back, her eyes closed, and there was clear liquid at her mouth (saliva?). She started twitching and then went limp. This was the most awful thing I have experienced! I love my chickens to death and I have no idea what went wrong! I feel terible. I recently noticed she seemed lighter in weight, but she ate and drank fine from what I saw. If someone could please give me an idea on what happened I would be so grateful. -edited to add- Her comb and wattles also looked almost shriveled up. they weren't completely purple, but they looked as if they had a tint of purple.
