    Need help! My pullet, Mae, is usually very independent & flighty. She has been layng in one spot for the past 24 hours, on her side with toes curled. Lets me pick her up with no issues (very unusual). When I attempt to stand her, she falls back over onto her side. On a diet of Start & Grow, but not eating or drinking. Please help!!!
