    One of my hens is just standing still flufed up and her eyes are closed and when there closed her eyelids are grey she molted about 6 months ago and hasn't really grown her feathers back and twitches her head every once in a while

    Wonder if she has a neurological problem or vitamin deficiency. Molting can be very hard on birds, and they often need extra protein and other treats to help grow back their feathers.
