I have a welsummer pullet who is about 3-1/2 months old. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed she just kinda closes her eyes a lot. I attributed it to her being sensitive to the wind, maybe, I dunno. Anyway, about a week ago, I noticed she is "narcoleptic". I don't know if there's a different word for it... but narcolepsy in humans is a neurological disorder wherein a person just falls asleep in the middle of normal activities. Martha has gone from just closing her eyes to falling out fully asleep (sometimes standing up) when she's in the middle of foraging or doing some other social activity with the other chickens, etc. They'll move together in a group around the yard as they hunt for bugs, but poor Martha gets left behind all the time because she just falls out asleep. I have had to pick her up more than once and put her back in the pen when it was time to go in because she fell asleep in the middle of her little chicken activities & didn't follow the rest of the flock back into the run. She doesn't care for being picked up, and she was a little startled when she realized what happened. Has anyone else had a chicken that does this? She is the smallest of the flock, obviously at the very bottom of the pecking order (though not abused by her larger pen-mates, just at the bottom of the order is all). She is eating and drinking perfectly fine, comes for treats, is eager to leave the pen and run with her "sisters" when it's free-range time. She's just... narcoleptic. Thoughts, ideas, please?
