    My white created polish has been acting strange the last two days. I thought it was because of the cold but now she's starting to walk like she's marching. She pulls her legs up high every step she takes, kind of slowly. She's normally very spunky and doesn't let you hold her very easily. She's not really eating much and has her butt feathers all fluffed up. I checked her vent.. Everything looks normal. She hasn't started laying yet, despite being 8 months old. She's just not herself. Anyone have any ideas?! :( She's one of my faves.

    And she's shaking her head a lot.

    This is what she's been doing with her tail all day.
