My pullets been acting stiff.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 15 week old pullet who's been acting odd the past few days. She always seems very stiff if she isn't walking around, it's only when she's standing still or laying down. Is this normal? Or is something wrong? She eats and drinks fine.

No. That's why I'm so confused. And I mean it's not like she's cold, its been in the 70'-80's

can she walk normally and are there any other signs of a problem?

Yeah she can walk just fine. Also I don't see anything else wrong with her beside the stiffness.
