Sorry your chicken died, I had one or two get sick I bagged them up and the NYC Sanitation Department took them to chicken heaven. Is there any rat poison around ?

I'm looking for a little advice.
I found one of my hens dead in the coop this morning with no obvious reason. I'm wondering if anyone has advice about determining why she might have died. Also, as a country girl, I'm used to burying dead pets; what am I supposed to do in the city?
I have one suspicion about her cause of death. I saw a dead rat in the yard after they had been roaming free yesterday, and if she pecked at it she may have consumed poison. Is there a reasonably way to get/do a chicken autopsy?
