    She is walking around with her eyes half closed and clucking. At first I though she was sick, then it dawned on me... is she getting ready to lay an egg? This is my first flock of chickens. [​IMG][​IMG]
  2. If your birds eyes are half closed or swollen shut, more than likely you have some sort of disease affecting your flock. I could be wrong, but chickens aren't known to "sleep walk." Their eyes shout be bright, open, and alert. You may want to investigate further.
