Hello!
Our Buff chicken just laid her first egg (green egg)! She was fine yesterday but today after she laid the egg she is laying around the run. Not really moving. Seems lethargic and tired. She is aware of her surroundings and ate food out of my hand. We checked her and no egg binding. Seems ok? Could this just be exhaustion after laying her first egg? It seemed to take her awhile. Thanks!

What do her poops look like? This happened with mine and it turned out to be coincidental coccidiosis.

Hello! She is a white buff opington I believe. I dont have any videos but she is barely walking. She will move but then plop down. We had to out her on her roost for bed.

Seems to be back to normal! Eating, running and flying around like nothing happened! Bizarre. Going to keep an eye on her
