    Hello everyone,
    For the past few days my leghorn hen has been sitting down periodically. This is unusual for her and I'm not sure why she is doing this. I have inspected her feet and legs for any injuries and have noticed nothing. She laid an egg yesterday, although it was smaller than usual, but didn't lay one today. She still walks around with the other hen, eats, drinks and poops and shows no signs of any injury.

    I'm worried that she might not be ok. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to BYC

    How is your hen?

    If she is still acting off, isolate her so you can observe her food/water intake and her poop.

    Let us know how she is doing.
