My white rock hen, 3 years old, is acting strange.
1. I can walk right up to her and pick her up. She is not a social hen and normally is hard to catch so this is my main indication that something is wrong.
2. Last night she was just standing outside her coop, staring at it in the dark.
3. She has been falling asleep standing up.
4. And she seems top heavy. If you gently nudge her she has to regain her balance.
Now what i don't see:
It does not feel like she has eaten.
She is not thin
She does not feel egg bound
her legs look fine apart from a slight rise which could possibly maybe be scaly leg mite if I squint at it...
Shes not molting
No diarrhea or signs of poop issues
She is just acting odd, and its bothering me. I just noticed her acting off yesterday night around 9 when I put my birds away. She was standing outside the coop door staring into it.
Any ideas? What should I try/what should I do?
