    I have one of my chickens just...walking, acting and even blinking slowly. She wont run when I try to pick her up, and thats not her usual self. It seems like she'll stop every few minutes and push like she was trying to lay an egg. Perhaps she has an egg blocked up? Any suggestions? She did this about a week ago but then after a day started acting normal again. Thanks.

    She could be egg bound - you can feel it if she is.....
