Hello! I'm a little worried about my almost-two-year-old buff. She recently started laying again after molting (about every other day), but stopped five days ago. Her last egg was Jan. 5. I'm concerned because the following morning, with temps in the upper 40's, she didn't run out of the coop with everyone else. She just stood there, staring, like she was in a trance. She finally came out, but walked slowly and joined the others. The next day, I found her just sitting on the ground and looking lethargic (she did this a couple of days). When it was time to go in for the evening, she barely managed to get up the two steps into the coop, flapping her wings to help herself. I don't think she's overweight, she looks the same size as she always has been and doesn't feel any heavier when I lift her. She doesn't have any trouble now, but she's still not trying to get up on the higher tier in the coop like she had been. I'm not sure if she was eating because I'm gone during daylight hours and only get home an hour or so before dark, but she did eat and drink yesterday afternoon, and ate a little today. She really seemed normal, yesterday, but this morning it looked like she couldn't lift her leg to scratch her face, and one of my other hens was standing there feeling sorry for her/sympathizing? so I picked her up to check her feet, but they look fine, too. Once I set her back down, she reached up and did her thing. I am totally confused! She does have poop on her butt feathers, and I haven't seen any abnormal looking poop, either. I only have two other hens and they have been behaving normally. We don't get really cold winters here in Southern Virginia, (we brought them all inside the two extremely cold nights we had this past week), and one of my White Rocks is still laying, so I don't understand why my buff would stop laying and start acting like this. I've checked her feathers, no mites or any type of critter that I can see. I've felt around for something hard, but really can't tell. I plan on putting her in a warm bath tomorrow morning to see if that helps in any way. I'm worried she's egg bound, but I've read every thread on this site and feel like she would be in much worse condition after four or five days of not laying. Any insight or suggestions would be much appreciated!!
