    My hen has been acting like she wants to lay an egg and squats in the grass and drips white. She closes her eyes and sits down. She also is drinking a lot of water and still seems to have energy to dig,peck and walk around. She acts normal for a while then goes back to acting sick again. I’m not sure what’s wrong with her but I did put oil to see if that would help her lay an egg. Also she swallowed a small rubber band a week ago I’m wondering if that’s causing her problems right now.

    Umm... try giving her healthy foods, like grit. How often has she been doing this? For how long? She may have a stomachache because she lays down.
    I’m not really sure.
