    She appeared sick, staying in hen house most of the day, lethargic when out in run. Next day she was fine, but have only had 2 eggs from her in 3 weeks, white only. She's had diarrhea or loose stool for a long time, but has always had good production until 3 weeks ago. Thought perhaps at first she had an egg stuck but with the small eggs guess not. Any ideas? Her vent seems as clean as ever.

    Not really a good sign, but....

    Knowing more about:

    your flock size(numbers, ages[in weeks or months], genders),
    your coop(size in feet by feet with pics),
    and what and how exactly you are feeding,

    might offer clues to if there is a solvable problem.

    I'm having a similar problem. One of my 2yo RIR has had loose stools for a while and a second 2 yo RIR has not had any loose stool, and NEITHER of them have laid for, geez, maybe a month or more? If I didn't love the little cluckers, I'd cull and get new.
