    I too found my Ameracauna acting sick this morning. She was normal yesterday. She is about 5-6 months old and hasn't layed yet. Today, she just sits around and when she tries to get up and walk, she kinda stumbles a little and sits back down. My first thought was that she is eggbound, since we are expecting her to lay just any day now. I probed a little bit with my finger and I feel a solid mass about 2 inches in but it's soft and not hard like egg shell. Could this still be her problem? I have her protected and isolated at this point.

    it could be she could just have a soft shelled egg give her an epsom salt bath and then dry her off and see if that helps don't let her drink the water though.
