    My Buff Orpington is just laying in the coop, all puffed up and bloated looking. Her comb is turning gray, and she doesn't look healthy. She has been like this for about two or three days. I read something about them laying internally, is this what she's doing? If so, what do I do?[​IMG]

    with any sick bird, first thing to do will be to separate and keep warm.
