Hi all, I have three chickens (and only 3 chickens) all going through something at the moment. I have a chicken that is sitting all day with her tail high in the air. She appears fine, strong and eating. She is not egg bound, she's not even laying - she has always stopped laying in the winter so I have not been concerned. She is sitting around all over the yard, not in the nest - anyone have any suggestions of what this could be? It's how the tail is going up and she appears to be pushing at times that worries me. She shows no other signs of internal laying, like lethargy, scrambled egg poop, tail down, ect. She almost seems more protective and strong than usual. I had a chicken with internal laying a week ago that was very sick but doing much better now. I used ionic silver, vitamins and milk thistle seed to help her, she's not out of the woods but better. This is her second round of this, last year same time we went through it. I am hopefully cautious although everyone says it's lethal. After last year, she went back to laying just fine, but she is the most fragile of the bunch. Third chicken is molting, no big deal, but they are really a rag tag bunch at the moment. My question is about the sitting chicken. Does anyone have any insight into causes of this? I've had the girls for 4 years and have never witnessed this before. With the other one ill, I am worried.
