Hen acting strangely

    Nippers Chillin' With My Peeps

    One of my hens an EE named nippers has been acting strangely. She pants sits down a lot and doesn't drink. I have found no abnormal droppings . I think she can't be that sick because she still eats, preens and dust bathes. She is 4 years old. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I don't want to lose her.:oops:

    I have also been giving her water in a syringe.
