    Hello all,
    We have a 9 month old hen who has been a good layer - the last several days, she's become lethargic, and developed white diarrhea.

    The other two hens in the same coop are healthy, active and "normal".

    Any thoughts?

    Is she still laying? If her laying has stopped, I'd give her a warm bath to try to rule out eggbound. Hopefully the egg will come out.

    Do it for 15 minutes or so. I have no experience with eggbound hens. If you think she might be eggbound then there are other threads we can point you to...or you can google it too.
