    Hey guys. Just wondering what you think is wrong with my 1.5 yr old red sex link hen. for the last few weeks she is just loafing around, not being her talkative running around happy self. She's eating fine as far as I know. The poop where she sleeps seems to be a little "loose" but other than the she just kinda walks around with no personality.....shes not coughing wheezing or anything like that. her vent is clear. My guess is she is just molting, because she hasnt laid an egg in a month. HELP!

    Has she been wormed recently? That could be the issue.

    Mine are always lazy when they are molting. [​IMG] The lack of other symptoms makes me think her problem is just the molt.
