    Hi! My usually frisky chicken seems much slower today. We have the coop door open and she is choosing to sit on the ground and not be out scratching. She layed an egg today so i don't think it would egg bound. I sprinkled oyster shell around for the first time today - could that cause her to feel ill? Her comb looks good and eyes appear clear. Any advice?

    Hard to say. Check the bottoms of her feet. When mine get a foot injury, they tend to sit more than usual. Other than that, it's just so vague, it'd be hard to put a name to it. Hey, Ann, is Bacon your last name? You and my DH may be related!
