    Hi there ~

    I have a pullet here who is very thirsty and she won't eat. All she does is drink. What is this? Should I isolate her? The other flock members aren't acting ill.

    Thanks

    Don't get too concerned just yet. I'd keep watching her, and check her crop- see if it's something like impacted crop or sour crop. That's what comes to mind first.
