    Ok so I have this EE that is about 7 months old now. She has started laying about a month ago. She lays eggs fine, eats fine, NO low energy. However when I come into the coup she keeps squatting every time I get near her and has clear stuff leaking a bit from her bum. Is this some type of mating behavior? What in the world is going on? I would think she is egg bound but her egg laying is perfect and the eggs come out perfect every time.
