Hey y'all. Any ideas on what's up here? I picked her up and nothing feels obviously wrong. She's eating/drinking/pooping like normal. Is this okay?
Am I freaking out about nothing or is this serious cause for concern??

I looked up droopy tail chickens, and got stuff about them being eggbound. But she's way too young to be eggbound. Thoughts?

She looks fine. My birds do that when they're relaxed.

If your girl has tail down, hunched over, or fluffed up, then she's most likely sick.
