    I have a hen that lays around all the time time. She can walk but doesn’t much anymore. She doesn’t use the perches anymore.
    Any ideas why?

    12 weeks old.I have a total of 8 the coop is made for 12 large chickens. Her breed can be broody. She eats by herself and I have not seen her working the ground for the scratch I put out daily. I give them chic grit and adult grit.

    Limit the treats and stick to just feeding a complete feed.

    Do you have any poultry vitamins and...
    Can you take a video of her and upload it to YouTube?

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    How long has she been lethargic? Is your pullet puffed up at all? If she is, you will want to consider treating the flock with Corid.
