one of my hens (cinnamon queen, 2 1/2 years) has been acting lethargic for the past two days. going to bed early and staying in the coop a bit longer, taking long breaks where she stands in the sun, and ruffing her feathers. she didn’t have any other symptoms so i assumed it was the weather changing because she hates winter. today i decided to bring her in next to the woodstove to warm up a little, and she pooped a thin cloudy liquid with small bits of opaque pale yellow, which i assume is egg yolk. i noticed after she was breathing a little heavy. what could this be? is it egg yolk peritonitis? i had a chicken vet in my area but i don't know if they’re still existent because they had some issues with covid so home remedy suggestions would be appreciated just in case. thank you in advance for any advice.
