    We have a buff orpington (will be one year in April), one of 6, that is not going in the coop at night. Beds down in the corner under the elevated coop. Rocks back and forth as if she is trying to lay. Also opens and closes her beak as if she is trying to throw up. Any suggestions or thoughts?

    I really don't have a clue what's going on with her, maybe if you post this on the emergency, illness thread you'll get some answers. I hope that she gets better soon.
  3. How long has she been doing this? I'd separate her if you are concerned.... I agree with posting in emergencies. (maybe the mods will move this?)
