    Hi y'all,
    Have a 10 m.o. Barred Rock, daily & reliable layer who's throwing me for a loop. Over a week ago she stopped laying and started spending most of her day lying alone in a corner of the run, clearly not feeling well.

    She's very lethargic, but eating and drinking. Has had yogurt (no noticeable change), been separated, had electrolytes in her water, and vitamins too. No change except some green poop today [​IMG]

    Crop is nearly empty. She doesn't feel eggbound. I don't see any mites, but maybe I'm missing them? This sounds really novice, but I'm not exactly sure how to find lice, and am not 100% clear on whether to deworm (She's never been. She has *not* been vaccinated and came to me 3 months ago from a breeder who is pretty attentive with her flock.)

    Ideas from the experts??? I have some amoxicillin in the fridge, but no baytril or other antibiotics.

    And... she's not molting or broody, but you probably assumed that...
