    I don't know what's wrong with one of my Australorps. She is 15 weeks old. She has been acting really weird. She bum scootches around backwards and bumps into things. Is she Ok? Should I be worried?
    Thanks,

    Does she have any bugs around her vent area? She may be trying to get them off.

    Well that's a good thing. But I don't know what else might be wrong. Just thought it might be bugs. Sorry

    I found some dried up poop around her vent. Maybe if was tugging on her feathers?

    I'm sorry the only other thing I can think of is that she might be egg bound but she probably too young to have eggs. Unless she is feel her stomach and see if there feels like something hard. If not I'm sorry I wish I could help. Good luck.
