    hello, if you don't know who oreo is, she is my best friend..AKA chicken lol.
    anyway a lot of people know who she is bc im always posting about her.
    so anyways she has been acting down lately (she is only 8 mths old)
    but she still eats and drinks, also recently she has been staying in her coop all morning then comes out.
    (her coop door is left open so she comes in when she wants and goes out when she wants)
    and we have a stone patch in out garden and she had just been sitting around there not really going on th grass, she also lays everyday.
    can anyone tell me

    Any other symptoms?
    What breed?
    What's the weather like, it's possible cooler on the rocks?

    If she's eating/drinking/pooping/laying not much else to go on, keep an eye on her for other symptoms.

    her comb is slightly droopy.

    she is not as perky.

    she makes strange "grrrrrrrr cluuuuuck" noise ( a broody angry noise)

    she is a Plymouth barred rock

    its been extremely hot here in UK about 15 - 20 degrees and sunny all day
    but started raining but still humidity rate is high

    yes it is cooler on the rocks but there are many other places in the garden for shade.

    OK thanks I will keep a good eye on her
    please reply

    I'm thinking it's the heat but keep a close eye on her. Maybe some "cool" treats ... freeze some scratch in water or cold melons?
