    Definitly sounds sick, maybe she is egg-bound?

    My pea hens lay every other day, not daily like chickens. Is it hot where you are, here in Fl they often keep their wings away from their body for better ventalation, and often pant too. But it could be illness too. How is her poo and is she eating well?[​IMG]

    I would post this under Emergencies. You may get faster responses there.

    She has been eating and drinking, her poop looks normal. She just acts tired, she will not let me get her to check her any closer. But it has been in the 90's here for the last 4 days. But she is the only one out of 5 that is acting this way. Thanks
