    I went outside today and noticed that my favorite [​IMG] wasn't in the run. i went inside and found her standing still. Since it was hot, i blamed the heat. i also took her to a grassy area and let her loose with a roo to eat some. normally, they go nuts foraging. she wouldn't have anything to do with it., so i let her back in. i started relocating her to cooler places, but she just went back in. she always went back to one part that is isolated. as far as i know, she hasn't eaten or drank anything. i can't tell poop apart with fifteen running around. i went out there later to put them up and she hadn't appeared to have moved. Later, when it was dark, she was still there, and not on a roost. earlier that week, i had found her on the ground in the morning, but that was probobly her being pushed off. i am decently sure she is close to the bottom of the newly placed pecking order. she is an eight week old americauna. Is she sick? Please help! [​IMG]

    naturally i get worried when there is nothing to worry about. i let her out side for grass, she made a beeline for it. she was moderately difficult to catch like ususal. all is well in my coop. [​IMG]
