My concern is her behavior. All she wants to do is sit in the nesting box all day long in the dark. She might go out for about 10 minutes to eat or drink and then goes straight back inside. Now this worries me quite a bit. I don't think she's eating or drinking enough. So what I started doing over the last few days is picking her up and putting her right in front of the feeder and waterer. She'll eat and drink including the treats I set out for her, but within a few minutes she's walking right back into the coop. What could be wrong? Could she be in pain? From what I've read chickens are supposed "act normal" even though there are molting. Not sit in the nesting box in a dark coop the whole entire day. And I can't blame it on the weather, because I'm in sunny Southern California where our temps are in the 70-80's even in March. Once when I was picking her up some yellow liquid spilled from her mouth. Could she be having digestive problems? I'm just so confused and worried. How can I help my Nellie?
