Could you describe "walking a bit funny"?  There's a good chance nothing is wrong.  But... Check her vent. Is it swollen and hard? Does she appear to be straining? Look for any other things amiss?symptoms.

No, Choco's vent isn't hard or swollen at all. Is this good? I hope that it's nothing serious, but hopefully it's nothing at all. Thank you for responding. I'll keep you posted to see if she lays tomorrow though. I appreciate any advice!! Thanks!
