    There is a rooster in with her and 4 others, could he have hurt her? She's very healthy, haven't checked her poop yet or anything else. Any advice would be appreciated. I have lost 2 in 2 wks for other reasons and am devastated. New to the chicken world and didn't realize just how attached u can get.

    Hello. My easter egger chicken was just having the same problem. I put her in some cold water and then put her in the shade, and she was back to normal.
