My 6 yr.old Buff Orp has pretty much stayed in her nest box 24/7 for the last couple of weeks. I get her out, make sure she drinks, eats, etc. Her poop appears normal,little runny. She'll eat and drink like she is starving and thirsty. When I get her out of the box, she fluffs way up and cluck "growls" at me the whole time. She picks at her self, but it might be normal preening after sitting for so long, in the box. She has scratched around her eyes so much, she has black scabbing. I have checked her for fleas and mites and don't see any. She did this once before & I took her to the vet, got meds and gave them to her. Unlike past experiences, she fought hard with the meds. After a few weeks, she was back to her old self; right as rain. I don't want to take her to the vet again. I bought some Adams flea/tick mist, but hate to give it to her if I don't have to. I am gone out of town working 4 days, so not here to check. Do you think I should hold off with the misting and maybe she is just moulting in her own way or give it to her? I hate to have her be miserable all week. Thank you.
