    How old is she? She looks like she is feeling terrible and weak. Make sure that she takes some water with electrolytes and vitamins. Give her some chopped egg and plain yogurt with her feed. Can you feel inside her vent for a hard stuck egg? Feel of her crop for being full and hard, or puffy. Look her over for mites and lice. Has she lost weight in her keel or breast, or does she seem full in her lower belly? Has she been wormed recently?

    She layed egg early this morning dont think one is stuck. She has one eye that stays half shut or all way shut. She seems a little better right now. Her crop is soft and she hasnt been wormed except we feed them food with cayenne pepper to prevent worms. Any more precautions and she is 2 yrs old.
