    One of my 3 hens seems to be acting depressed??? She's eating and drinking but stays on her own and not interested in scrabbing around and her tail isn't sticking up??? :( I'm very worried about my poorly Matilda indeed.

    Sorry to hear about your girl. I would personally start with a thorough exam. Check her all over for parasites, injuries, bumble foot etc. if you are not sure what is normal or if something is off, look up pictures, post a pic on here or compare her to your other hens.
