    My 1 year old hen Choco, has been acting a bit weird latelty. She is still eating and drinking ok, but she hasn't laid an egg since yesterday. And she's walking a bit funny. Does anyone know what's wrong with her? Please respond soon!! I will keep you all updated as far as her behavior and if she lays an egg tomorrow. Please help me!!

    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!
