    PLEASE ADVISE,,, just checked on my girls. They are 19 weeks old and one of them, Sheila, was lying in her dust bowl. When I brought clover into the rooms to n she wasn't the interested. She finally got up and all five are now in front of the besting boxes in the coop chatting away. Sheila, is there also, but is on floor in her brooding position. Wondering if this is pre-egg laying behavior? Or should I be worried

    I would check her over good, she could be unwell, or maybe she hurt her a leg.
