    One of our hens has been acting differently this last week. She is eating and drinking but doesn't have much energy. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    Looks like she maybe starting to molt. That can cause a hen to become listless and isolated. I've got one that hides from the flock all day long when she's molting.
