    I have a 7 month old RIR hen. Today she started drooping het wing just a little tiny bit (it makes her look bigger). She also is pretty noisy. She is noisy on a daily basis. She is walking around with her beak partly open. The only problem is that i read that RIRs dont get broody, and if they do they dont follow thru. Anybody got any ideas?
