    Hey I have a 4 year old hen and a few days ago I started to notice she was acting weird. She is really slow moving she would be laying down all day but laying up against something like the wall or water dish. She will not purch with the other birds at night. She will not lay eggs. I separated her from the flock and she still acts the same but there are days that she will not eat or drink water and still no eggs. She has no signs of broken legs or wings and she is not getting beaten up by the other birds. I don't know what's going on. Thank you

    Sounds like something is going on. If you can take her to a vet, I would do so, otherwise she may improve or she might not. Sick birds will stop laying.
