Hi y'all! I got chicks on Wednesday to add to my current flock. Two of my hens (I guess from hearing them) are acting like they are broody, and my precious baby girl Bluesy began acting strange. She is droopy and has her head facing the back wall of a nesting box she was laying in this morning. She doesn't seem to be losing color on her comb and wattles. She is breathing normally except for big breaths like she is sighing sometimes. I can't find any kind of poop that seems alarming. Her nasal canal is clean. Her feet are normal. Her eyes are normal. The last time I saw her eat was on Wednesday. I haven't seen her drink anything since I was not home all day Thursday. She has been laying normally. I would like to know if it could be depression and if so, how to help her. Thank you for your responses.
