Hi, I have 3 chickens that are 8 months old, they have been fully free range until a couple days ago when we clipped their wings and confined them to their good sized coop with garden (with summer coming we're a little bit over the poop all over the deck!). Anyway they've all been laying 1 egg a day since July. Until a couple days ago, 1 of them has been sitting in the laying box pretty much constantly all day yesterday and again today! I've been in to see her lots thinking she was ill but when i lift her out she'll happily eat and have a drink. She does seem uncomfortable though, her feathers are all puffed up and she seems irratable, she even let out a couple of squarks which was weird. She seems to be scratching & pruning a lot too! I'm wondering if she's egg bound or is it something else? Would she be affected by us clipping her wings? The other 2 are perfectly ok. I'm starting to worry now and I really want to help her, can anyone please help?????
Thank you in advance
First time chicken owner!
