    I have a chicken that is off by herself a lot, fluffed up a lot, eating but not as much, how do I tell what is up with her?

    Yes, we really need to know--how old is she? Is she laying yet? What does her poop look like? What is her diet? Is she losing feathers?

    If she is young it sounds like possible coccidiosis.
